- Terms & Conditions
This agreement is between you and Musica Kirklees
For the purpose of this agreement "term" refers to one of the following periods
- Autumn Term - September to the Christmas Holidays
- Spring Term - Christmas Holidays to the Easter Holidays
- Summer Term - Easter Holidays to the Summer Holidays
Musica Kirklees aims to deliver a maximum of 33 lessons per academic year. School terms vary in length thus affecting the number of lessons delivered in any one term. Our guarantee is that Musica Kirklees teachers will offer at least 30 lessons during a full academic year (an average of no fewer than 10 lessons per term).
Should we fall short of this guaranteed minimum through teacher absence, we will make a pro-rata refund or credit in respect of the shortfall on our guarantee, normally at the end of the academic year.
We are unable to offer refunds or credits for lessons missed by the student, the only exception being an absence of 5 consecutive weeks due to illness when the fee for 5 lessons will normally be refunded on production of a doctor's certificate.
A student can withdraw from lessons only at the end of a term. In years 11 and 13, when a student is taking GCSE or A Level examinations, it is possible to cease tuition at the Summer half term break.
Advance written notice of withdrawal (an email [email protected] or fax 01484 480490 is acceptable) must be received at 9 Beast Market, Huddersfield, HD1 1QF by 1 November, 15 February or 1 June for lessons to terminate in December, March and July respectively.
If finishing for GCSE or A Level exams, written notice of withdrawal needs to be received by 15 February and a maximum of 27 lessons will be available during the academic year, with 25 lessons as the guaranteed minimum available.
Pupils transferring schools at the end of the academic year will automatically be timetabled for lessons in their new school unless you write to Musica Kirklees giving notice to cancel lessons.
The prices for the academic year normally remain valid for the academic year and are reviewed annually with the revisions taking effect from September. We will inform all customers of the increase in fees in the Summer term newsletter.
