How many subjects can I book?
It is possible to book a maximum of two courses. One subject can be studied in the first three-day course (Sunday 22 to Tuesday 24August). A second subject can be studied in the second three-day course (Wednesday 25 August to Friday 27 August). Alternatively you can choose to come for just one of the courses to study one subject.
What should I bring?
Bring any notes you may have been given or taken on the subject in the last eighteen months, as well as writing implements, rulers, calculators etc. If you wish to make use of the Sennocke Sports Centre, then please bring sports kit, racquets, swimming kit etc. Boarders, aside from what you’d expect to bring, please also bring a towel, and a plug adaptor may be useful.
What time can I arrive at the boarding house?
The boarding staff will expect you to arrive between 4pm and 9pm the day before your lessons start (so arrive on Saturday 21 August for the first course running Sunday 22 to Tuesday 24; and arrive on Tuesday 24 August for the second course running Wednesday 25 August to Friday 27 August)
What happens if I need to cancel?
In the event of cancellation before 1 July 2021, £100 is non-refundable. If we are informed of cancellation after 1 July 2021, none of the fee will be refunded. The last date for full receipt of payment is 1 July. Registration after 1 July will be accepted if there is space on the course. Email the course coordiator, Paul Thompson email@example.com
Do I need insurance?
Students will be responsible for their own medical insurance cover and are urged to take out insurance which fully covers them for damage or loss of their personal belongings for the entire duration of the course, including fees in the event of cancellation after the final payment date.
Are all the subject choices guaranteed to run?
While we expect to run all the courses offered, the courses can only run if there is sufficient demand and we will notify students and parents as soon as possible if it looks likely that a course will not run after all. In which case switching subject or a full refund of course fees will be offered.
