Specific course timings

Children should arrive on Monday 20 August between 8.45 and 9.15am, and the course will finish with an end of course concert on Friday 24 August at 2.30pm, after which the children will be ready to leave.

After the first day, children attending on a day basis should arrive by 9.25am (no earlier than 9.15 please), ready for the first session at 9.30am.  They should be picked up at 6pm each day.


£565 residential, £410 day for all Summer Course bookings made before 11 May 2018. 
For bookings after this date, the cost is £595 residential and £445 day.

The cost of the courses is all inclusive – all classes and tuition, accommodation, meals and activities.

If any day children wish to join in the evening activities, this option is available until 9pm and will be chargeable at £7 per hour.

Availability of places

We moved in 2017 to three courses a year rather than two, because in 2015 and 2016 places were completely sold out several months in advance.

Three courses a year in 2017 eased that pressure somewhat: but we were still sold out on one Summer Course; and on our 2018 Easter Course, we are restricted on the number of residential places we can offer.

With all this in mind, we strongly suggest booking early to guarantee a place - this really is a fact, not a hard sell!
