Courses will be subject to cancellation if there is insufficient enrolment.
These will only be considered on production of a valid Doctor 's Certificate. Your child will be removed from the course for the rest of the term, in order for the refund to be issued.
Due to sickness or staff training, it may be necessary for your child's teacher to change. We will endeavour to inform you of any changes, but this is not always possible at short notice.
