Any other factors, e.g. do they want a space only if their friends or siblings also get space (this makes it more difficult but we need to know).
Does my child need to have any starting ability for certain classes?
Absolutely not, our recreational classes are available and encouraged for children of all abilities.
Do you have squad groups for more experienced children ?
Yes, we have a variety of squad groups and festival groups that work on entering competitions or displays around both the local area and national area. These do require a trial to join to ensure a certain level of ability and commitment is present.
Can we still join your classes after the term has started?
You can join at any time during the year as long as there are spaces available so please call or email to check spaces for the session you are interested in.
Can we try the class before committing?
Of course, we offer a pay on the day class to allow you to try the class before signing up to our termly blocks. These cost either £8 for 1 hour or £14 for 2 hours.
How expensive are your classes?
We currently charge £8 for the first hour in a week and an additional £6 for any subsequent hours in the week. We run 7 week terms so for 1 hour a week for the term is £56. Please bear in mind this does not include initial deposit (£10), annual Dyson membership fees (£10) and British Gymnastics membership for insurance (£17*). The annual costs of these are when you first join and they renew every Sept each year except the one time deposit cost.
If you already have a valid British Gymnastics membership you do not need to pay for this again you can simply add our club to your profile to be covered.
