Classes could soon be cancelled at The Institute in Hampstead Garden Suburb.

Last week, the Institute’s trustees decided to put the adult education provider into liquidation.

But a statement on The Institute’s website states: “It has been decided that this decision will now be taken by Institute Society members.

“In light of these recent events, a meeting will be held in the next few weeks to decide the future of the Institute and whether to run courses in the Summer Term.”

Students were encouraged to return to the website in two weeks time for an update.

The Institute has yet to respond to requests for comments from the Ham&High.

Founded by pioneering philanthropist Henrietta Barnett, The Institute opened in March 1909 and has been providing “high quality and good value for money” adult education across North London for over 100 years.
