Cancellations made less than “48 hours” will be charged in full at the current hourly rate. Where a discounted block booking has been made the current full hourly rate will be charged not the discounted hourly rate.

The course can be moved free of charge to another time and date if agreed with both parties. Once the course has started, the credit must be used within 6 months. If we the instructors turn up and you the pupil are not in at the address arranged, the lessons that day will be charged at the current hourly rate.
