Term Invoices




I hope everyone has now received their child's invoice with term and class details. Please contact Jo straight away if you have not received one and you have checked your junk mail box. INVOICES NEED TO BE PAID by your child's first class of the new term next week. If you have a large invoice and would like to discuss spreading costs please contact Jo asap. Thank you for your support and understanding as we change to this new automated system. Thank you also to the people who have already paid! Once payments are received you should receive a receipt via email.
Please note a late payment charge of £20 will be payable on any outstanding invoices from 11th May. Also, a 1/2 term’s notice is required in writing if you no longer require the place or 1/2 term’s fees are payable. Thank you for your understanding. 

Summer Term Examinations

RAD Ballet - Entries are about to be submitted. Exams are 3rd / 4th July. Please note the studio practice will be on Sunday 30th June so please keep this date free as this must not be missed.

Acrobatic Arts 
STARTING September

Miss Caroline has successfully completed the training for the classes and will be supported initially by Miss Jo. Our aim as always is to offer a professional level class with safety as uppermost importance. We are very excited to bring this to the school and look forward to working with your children to develop new skills. 

Further details to follow and workshops during the Summer.

Classes will take place on a Monday evening at Clyst Heath Primary School from September 2019.  Initially we will have two classes based on age ranges (5-6pm and 6-7pm). (Monday evening Tap classes are moving to Tuesday evening as previously notified.)

These classes are intended as an 'add-on' for pupils who already take dance classes and priority will be given to our current students as places will be limited to start with.

Full School Show - November 2019

After May 1/2 term your child will be given a form to complete and return by yourselves regarding permission to perform in the show and costume hire fees.  ALL FORMS need to be returned with payments before the end of the term in July. We have a colossal amount of work to do behind the scenes checking what licensing / chaperoning etc.. we require, which I will be working on during the summer holiday. PLEASE PLEASE RETURN FORMS PROMPTLY so we don't need to waste your child's valuable teaching time chasing forms.

I will speak to parents of new children in the Saturday classes regarding arrangements after 1/2 term in June.
