- a short-term FIXED-LENGTH course.
We agree a programme of study with parents/pupils. Parents are welcome to ask for the programme to be modified at any time. Lessons may include one subject or a mix of subjects.
Fees are payable by regular subscription. Payments are due on the day of the last paid lesson.

- Pupils are enrolled into weekly lesson(s) and attendance is compulsory during Excelr8 Learning’s term dates.
- Please note: our term dates closely follow but are not identical to state school terms.
- Our term dates are posted on our website and are displayed in the centres.
- Holiday lessons are optional but lesson times may vary. Optional holiday lessons are booked separately ahead of each holiday (subject to availability).
We understand that missing a lesson is sometimes unavoidable. Our policy is to offer a replacement lesson provided parents notify us in advance that their child will be unable to attend lessons.
Our terms for replacement lessons:
- Replacement lessons are subject to availability.
- A replacement lesson will be offered on any day we have a vacancy.
- Replacement lessons (if available) must be taken asap, normally within 2 weeks.
- Replacement lessons are not available during any school holidays.
- Replacement lessons are taken as an extra lesson, usually on a different day to the normal lesson(s).
- Please Note: We specifically do not carry over or tack a lesson on to the end of a subscription period.
Missed One to One Lessons
Provided we receive 24 hours advance notice, that means BEFORE 6 PM on the day before the lesson is due to take place, we will cancel the lesson and arrange a replacement at no charge.
If a lesson is cancelled on the same day but we receive notice of at least 1 full hour before the lesson is due to take place, we will make a charge of 50% of the lesson fee.
If no prior notice is given, we will make a charge of the full amount of the lesson fee.
Cancelling an Enrolment:
To end an open-ended enrolment we require 4 weeks’ term time advance notice in writing.
Please note our terms of cancellation:
- Notice must be given in writing please by letter or email.
- Please ensure you have received a reply confirming that we received your notice.
- Notice is for 4 weeks of term-time lessons.
- Holiday weeks are not included in the 4 weeks’ advance notice.
- If notice is given just before a school holiday, the notice period will extend the enrolment beyond the holiday into the following school term.
Long Absences or Breaks in Enrolment:
We are happy to agree a break in a pupil’s enrolment but require:
- 4 weeks’ advance notice and
- an agreed date when the lessons will resume.
- We will then hold open the lesson day and time for you.
- In addition, we require a holding fee of 4 weeks’ lessons.
- The holding fee is payable at the time notice is given.
Unfortunately, unless these arrangements are in place, a pupil’s enrolment will terminate.
