1. Payment Information

1.1. When you purchase a pass you are entering into a contract for the purchase of a full academic year’s school (typically 190 days). As such any cancellation will mean that you remain liable for the remainder of the full year (see section 2, Cancellation/Refunds).

1.2. Direct Debit instalments will be collected by a third-party merchant provider. An initial deposit is payable at the time the pass is purchased followed by further direct debit payments on the first working day of each month. If a direct debit is cancelled, the associated pass is immediately voided, no refund of payments already made will be considered.
