In certain circumstances we have the right to decline requests for membership - a full written explanation will be provided on request. Breach of safeguarding and federation rules or non payment will result in our cancelling your membership.

Intial payment (joining fee) is payable by cash or card subesequent tution fees are collected at a discounted rate for either payment by direct debit on the 1st or 15th of the following month or by one of our annual discount rates.

Each billing cycle assumes an equal number of four weeks per calander month thus direct debit collection amounts do not vary. Therefore each member only pays for 48 weeks of 52 week year - this allows for school closures during holiday periods and student voluntary absences. There is no tie in contract to monthly payment scheme - if you require to cancel your agreement a 30 day notice period is requested - if you have paid for an annual discounted cash out no refund is given.

Opening over bank holiday weekends is at the owners discretion.

Every endevour will be undertaken by us to provide you with the highest quality of lesson content on a regular basis - unforseen circumstances such as equipment failure, adverse weather conditions, natural diasters, outbreak of war, riot, civil unrest and/or illness may lead to lesson cancellations we will give you as much notice as feasibly possibly in such circumstances.
