Happy New Year!

We hope you have enjoyed the Christmas break.


We apologise for the delay in the Spring term invoices being issued. Our emails and website were temporarily down over Christmas as we transitioned to our new website, everything is back in working order now.

Due to our continued growth we are now obliged to become VAT Registered which means we are required by HMRC to add VAT to our invoices starting this term.

May we take this time to point out that our prices have not increased since January 2014 and still have not increased. The addition of VAT will not financially benefit the school in any way and we are being forced to add VAT due to HMRC’s regulations which cannot be avoided. We have managed to sustain our prices for 4 years despite ever growing over heads such as increased hall hire rates and staffing costs, I hope you understand.

Our New Website -
