FAQs 2022/23


When do weekly classes start?

Weekly classes will begin in w/c Monday 19 September.

How many weeks are the classes?

Most classes last for 10 weeks each term, with a break for half term from Monday 24 October. If a class has a different number of weeks, it will be stated. Unless otherwise stated, most classes then continue in the Spring and Summer Terms. 

How many places are you having on each course?

We will consider each course, and its location, on a case by case basis. We will not be having 25 places on Beginners courses, as in the past, but will be considering the capacity of individual classrooms. Our aim is to use the biggest classrooms for the courses, to allow our evening students to choose to sit at a distance, if they prefer. 

What if my class has sold out?

We will keep waiting lists, as usual, and if places become available or circumstances change, we will be in touch.

What is your refund policy?

It is usually our policy to only offer a full refund if a class does not run due to low numbers or tutor illness. In order to sustain the viability of the programme, partial refunds will not be given except in exceptional circumstances.

What are you doing to keep us safe?

We will be enrolling to a sensible number of students, based on the size of the room in use and the nature of the class.

Some classes may be asked to enter school through a different door, rather than using the main Reception doors after Week One, due to the location of their classroom. All attendees will be given clear directions and we will make sure that classes are suitably signposted. We have roomed the classes in our largest classrooms.

Please do not come onto the school site if you or a member of your household is displaying coronavirus symptoms. 

Can I have a coffee or fill my water bottle?

We will provide our usual café service in Henry's Diner. There are 3 or 4 water coolers which are accessible to the locations around school and we will let students know where these are.
