Fees for the Academy tuition are (£85.00 pcm – paid over 12 months) or (£900.00 – paid annually). Invoices are available on request. Class timetables, teachers and Principals are subject to change without notice.
Monthly membership fees will still be taken in August despite there not being FTA sessions run, as the monthly membership is an annual fee paid over 12 months, and is still required in the month of August.
In the event of a membership being reinstated following a memebrship cancellation, an additional £70.00 sign up fee applies (£70 + £15 = £85 total sign up fee)

In the event that you do not make the membership fee payments when due, the right to send the child to attend FTA will be withdrawn until payment is received and brought up to date.
