Notes

Lessons are billed & payable half-termly, in advance. Payments can be made either by card, direct debit or BACS. Cash is no longer accepted. 

Where children have missed lessons due to absence or illness, we will endeavour to catch up their lessons at later date so children always receive what has been paid for. 

The school continues to invest in our pupils by covering costs for music lessons for pupil premium eligible children. The fund covers a maximum of two lessons up to a maximum weekly cost of £14. Any lessons on top of this allowance are payable at the usual rate.
