There are no refunds of terms fees for non-attendance of sessions during a term or due to internet or computer problems arising from student IT equipment during online tuition. Likewise there is no rearrangement of such sessions unless the non-attendance is due to the student attending a school parent evening and notice of this non-attendance has been given at least 14 days prior to the session.
