When to enrol
Due to the popularity of the short evening and Saturday courses we advise that you apply as early as possible to avoid disappointment. Classes are small and places are strictly limited. Enrolment is on a first come first served basis, however, we do hold a ‘waiting list’ for popular courses in case of cancellations.
