*In case of insufficient numbers:
Please note that all exam courses are subject to sufficient numbers. If there are not enough students to make a designated exam class, at the time of booking we will offer you an Intensive General English course at the correct level and will include extra exam support and guidance. If there are not enough students of the same level to form an intensive afternoon class, we may replace the afternoon  intensive classes with a total of 2 X 1:1 classes per week (total 1.5 hours). In this case, extra work including practice tests would be set in the afternoons; it is suggested students attend a minimum of 2 afternoons per week (2 X 1.5 hours). There would be no additional charge for this.

**Parental consent is required for all students under 18 years of age. There may be events on the social programme that are not available to students under 18. It must be understood that classes are very much adult-oriented and a mature attitude to studies is necessary. The school fully understands the different welfare requirements of young students and will provide support where necessary.

The registration fee is £80.
