How Covid-safe will the Summer School be?

The Summer School Working Party members are aware that some potential students may be concerned about Covid-19 safety at this year's Summer School, and this is making them hesitant to book their places. We're working closely with representatives from the venue, Ingestre Hall. We can't say for certain at this stage what measures will be taken, but we will keep students fully informed as we go.


Do I get a refund if I change my mind?

Deposits aren't usually refundable, but this year, because of the uncertainty around Covid-19, we will refund any deposit (and other monies paid) by any student who find they are not able to attend, for whatever reason.


Why ask for 1st and 2nd choice for accommodation?

We have a mix of accommodation types at Ingestre Hall and the nearby Lodges, and we try to give students their first choice each time. However, there are some students with particular needs - for instance with mobility difficulties - and we will give them the priority choice on the most suitable accommodation to meet their needs. This may mean that particular rooms may no longer be available to other students, even if they'd booked sooner.


How do I pay?

We ask for a deposit of £100 to secure your place. As our charges are based on accommodation, once we've agreed your accommodation, you will be informed of the balance to pay. You can pay this when informed or after the Summer School. Some students find it easier to pay in installments - email us to arrange this if you wish.

We accept payment by cheque and BACS, and the details will be sent when you are informed of your balance.
