Hello - just wondering if anyone with a place on the Summer intensive can please help out with any info re payment/confimring a place. Is there a deadline coming up soon for paying the balance for the course? Situation is that my daughter is on the waiting list for the week of the 19 July, but if she doesn't end up getting a place, she's keen to go to another course in the summer. Finances don't permit me to book anything else until I'm sure that she doesn't have a place, but I'm getting worried that we might miss the boat and lose out if I don't book something soon! I just thought that maybe if there was a deadline for payment, I could wait until a few days past that and then take the plunge with booking another course.

 

Thank you anyone for any insights 😀

Hi, the deadline for payment was May 17th by 5PM.

Thank you so much! That's really helpful. Sounds like we would probably have heard by now if she had a place from the waiting list, then. Never mind. At least I can go ahead and book something else with confidence.

@GabrielleDeVif Europeans are unable to travel, a huge number of places will become available... That's our last hope!

It's a good point, and I was sort of hanging onto that for a bit. But my daughter is only 10, and it would make sense that places become available on a like-for-like basis with the people who withdraw. So this could be very relevant for the older age groups, but would people send their 10 year olds abroad for a summer school? Perhaps they do! (I guess if the whole family comes and makes it a holiday that would work)...

Thanks for the inside info! That might absolutely play into people's decisions about taking up a place or not ....Perhaps I should have considered more that people might cancel (or be forced to by travel difficulties etc) after paying the full amount.

Yes, many 10 year-olds from the continent have been offered places.

My DS is week 1 also. He’s a Y5 JA at Birmingham. 

Oh that’s great, thank you! We are Y5 JA and this will be first time doing Summer Intensives! It would be nice to have some friends there, as I think that we don’t know anyone there he knows yet!!

Hi, My ds is 11. Let me know if you would like them to get in touch before then. Does your son have a phone or perhaps a zoom call? For Spring intensive we did a zoom call with a couple of boys from this forum before that week. I know  a couple of boys going that are currently year 5. I am sure they will have a great time. 

Thanks

Does anyone know when they finish on the last day? I’ll email them, but we need to book a train home to Scotland and there are only a few seats left. I’d like to know ASAP!
