Re-enrolment for existing pupils

Existing pupils have been assessed in their lessons and parents and guardians will have received a letter advising if their child is recommended to remain in the same class or move up.

Existing pupil re-enrolment for the Pools on the Park Spring term will then take place from Monday 28 November to Saturday 10 December 2022 as follows:

For pupils remaining in the same class on the same day

Parents and guardians will be telephoned directly by us to take lesson payment between Monday 28 November and Saturday 10 December 2022 in order to secure their child's lesson place on the Spring term.

You must pay by 6pm on Saturday 10 December to guarantee a lesson place for the Spring term. After this date unpaid places will be released to other pupils.

For pupils who have been recommended to move up a class, and/or wish to change day

Parents and guardians will be telephoned directly by us to take lesson payment between Monday 28 November and Saturday 10 December 2022 in order to secure their child's lesson place on the Spring term. You will be provisionally reserving a place on your existing day, time and stage.

You must pay by 6pm on Saturday 10 December to guarantee a lesson place for the Spring term.
