Terms & conditions must be accepted by all students and parents/guardians. By attending classes past the two-week trial and, therefore, enrolling your child in our classes, you are agreeing to the terms below.

If you are paying for three or more classes per week, you receive a discount of £1 for every class you are paying for, all discounts should be shown on your invoice. The dates of each “term” are defined on our website.

3. Fees must be received by the dates stated or a 5% surcharge will be added. If fees are still not received one week after this, a 10% surcharge will be added and the student will not be permitted into class until the fees are paid in full for the whole term, including the surcharge.
