Email text:

Hi, I’m writing to ask you to clarify the relationship between the Smallford Residents’ Association and Craig Tallents. According to your website, Mr. Tallents was or is an officer in the SRA. I hope this is no longer the case.

Craig Tallents is the owner of the Leicester Square School of English. Over the Christmas holidays he permanently closed down the school without informing staff or students. He now owes – and is refusing to pay – his staff thousands of pounds in unpaid wages.

Perhaps worse, Mr. Tallents took money for accommodation and lessons from students even after he knew the school would be in no position to offer either. This means newly arrived international students came to a closed school having no accommodation, no lessons, no advice and no help. Shameful!

More information on Mr. Tallent’s despicable actions can be found here:

And here:

I assume you find this as shocking as I do, so I am requesting you share this information with the Smallford Residents’ Association.





Workers at the Leicester Square School of English have been in a battle with their wage stealing boss, Craig Tallents, for nearly a month now.

Tallents, the owner of the Leicester Square School of English, permanently shut down the school without informing staff or students. Staff are owed thousands of pounds in unpaid wages resulting from illegal contracts, lack of notice and holiday pay, and illegal denial of paternity pay.

So far, staff and supporters have occupied the unused school building, caused Tallents to resign as governor from the Bancroft’s school, to take down the website of his company, Asparagus Consulting, and held a rowdy picket in Leicester Square.

Craig Tallents, a member of the Drapers Company and an ex-certified accountant, fancies himself a “management consultant.” The email campaign is to remind Craig he can’t hide behind liquidators – he needs to pay his staff now!
