    In the event that you want to leave, we do require 30 days notice to process the transition and offer the place to a new pupil. Simply advise us via email or text message.

    If a pupil is absent; Lessons missed cannot be refunded. In certain circumstances we may be able to offer an alternative time if space is available but this is not guaranteed.

    If our teacher is absent; We will arrange for an alternative teacher or offer to make up the lesson at a future date. If either of these is not possible we will offer you a refund for any lessons missed.

Parents / Carers are requested to arrive a few minutes before the lesson starts and a few minutes before the lesson has finished. We ask parents not to enter lessons without prior permission. As an academy with lots of children enrolled, adults must not consume alcohol before attending lessons.

    Health & safety is a responsibility we take seriously so please bring to our attention anything that may give you cause for concern.
