We look forward to welcoming you back to the school in the Autumn term. Please do sign up using the registration forms on our join us page.
For the autumn term we will be operating on the following dates:
- 10th, 24th;
- 8th (Annual General Meeting), 15th;
- 5th, 19th;
- 3rd, 10th (Christmas Party)
The school finances are becoming increasingly stressed in terms of cash flow (when we incur cost vs. when we receive income) and how far they can accommodate unintentional non-payment. To address this, from September, we will implement a new process that will see invoices being sent to members after the third week of term whereby they then have one month to make payment.
This allows two taster weeks for those new to the school, then from the third week, if a student attends a class, invoices will be sent to collect payment for the term — exceptions will be made for those who are new and wish to trial the lessons mid-term.
Where possible we will prefer payment by bank transfer (details available on our join us page), but will continue to accept payment by card and cash via the treasurer, thus allowing payments to be reconciled.
This move to invoicing only relates to term fees, payment for cafe and shop goods will continue as before (by cash or card).
