Questions about Membership

How quickly can i start

We need to design you a tuition plan and get it printed and ready before you start. Firstly, in order to do this, we require registration fee payment. IT will then take generally a few days to organise. We expect that within a week we can have you up and running.

Can i have a break from my membership

We offer a holiday option. Your place is guaranteed on return, but it does require a small retainer fee. Alternatively, you can cancel your membership, but there is no guarantee of a place being available on your return
