We will not accept rude or disrespectful comments from either parents or students whether these be verbal or written. If you feel you have a valid complaint the correct procedure is to either put it in writing or to request a meeting with the Instructor who’s in charge of that lesson. If we receive a meeting request we will do our best to accommodate this around our classes as soon as possible. We would also like to remind our parents that out of respect we will not tolerate being bad mouthed on our premises to our other customers. Any Parent that does this will not be allowed to wait in our classes and will need to drop their child off at the door. This kind of behaviour detracts from the positive and friendly atmosphere we want to promote within our school, and adversely affects out students.  

  •   On social media we will not stand for comments that clearly target us directly or indirectly, our school or our students. We would prefer to ensure that all problems are dealt with professionally. Where we feel either the school, the coaches, and coaching team or our students are being targeted in this way we will take action which could include legal action or expulsion. Where posts are seen to be of a bullying or negative nature we will also take note of those who support those statements. 

  • Our decisions with regards to when students grade are final and will not be open to discussion. We make all decisions for purely professional reasons and with the interests of our students at heart. Please respect our professional judgment.
