PLEASE TELL US if anything seems unsatisfactory, or does not suit you.
We cannot do anything to help on something we do not know about. It has happened in the past that we have received a notice to leave, then we discover there is no need because something can be adjusted to suit the family better.
If there is a disagreement between us about fee payments, or any serious issue arising to do with your contract, our services, or your child's behaviour, we will try to sort it out with you with patience and courtesy. We do usually manage to sort out problems. If necessary a third party mediator can assist.
We reserve the right to close a student out of school either temporarily or permanently, if in our judgement their behaviour disrupts the efficient progress of lessons, or causes distress to others. There would normally be no refund of fees. In the case of permanent exclusion, if fees have been paid in advance for a term, or for the year, we would refund the advance portion beyond the current month.
