Maritime School Fire

British maritime training school, which specialises in superyacht training, John Percival Marine Associates, suffered a major fire this morning, May 11, 2010.


“It’s business as usual though, our schedule has not changed,” said Anna Williams, manager director. “We’re now running all classes in a local community centre, which actually used to be a school, so it has all the facilities.”  


Classes immediately were relocated to the local Hoylake Community Centre and the students were in their lectures today by 0930.


Williams assured that all files were saved intact; the MCA has already promised help should replacements be needed. 


The office, administrative staff and telephones have been relocated to Percival’s private house and are running normally.  All contact details remain the same however. For information, it's recommended to email rather than call.

The Team at John Percival Marine Associates are amazing
I got the phone call from a class member to say that the school  had suffered a fire overnight and that we were to muster at a local cafe until further notice. With in an half an hour we were relocated and our noses back in the books
They have already spoke to the MCA to gain approval for the classes to be held in the temporary facility, so the continuity of training will continue. I wish John and is team the best for the future and from what I have seen, it will be a very short process until they are up and running as usual. Regards Shane McLarnon
