*ONSITE CLASSES: Mobile phones are not permitted on classroom tables and must be kept out of sight and on silent. We’re all adults so we know you understand why. This is at the request of our teachers to avoid any unwanted distractions.

*ONLINEPlease be seated at a table (not couch). Despite being at the office or in your home, you’re still in our classroom environment. Online classes must only be attended using a PC or laptop. (Smartphone layout works but isn’t the best for classes). We require all students to be using either earphones, a headset or earbuds with isolated mic for online classes. (Webcam speaker mics echo and pick up everything so we don’t allow this). 

*Teachers do not consent to being recorded (video/audio). It is a breach of our Privacy & IP copyright policy that is in place.

9) Changes to Enrolment

As you progress through our course, as a school we reserve the right to relocate a student based on progress. This may include “moving to a more suitable class” or alternatively “offering private tuition instead“. It’s our responsibility as a school to ensure all students learn at a comfortable/challenging pace. Managing a group of students can be a science.

10) Level Checks

Level checks are conducted either online or onsite. Both options are recorded for internal purposes only. Attending a Level Check does not guarantee an enrolment option. Majority of our classes run at capacity so we will only arrange a level check if we feel there is a potential option for you.
