How much are your classes?
Our classes vary in cost depending on the class in question. But all our beginner classes are charged at £5.00 an hour, which is paid each half term. The cost for each specific class can be found on the classes section of our website.
Do I have to be a British Gymnastics member?
All our gymnasts are required to have British Gymnastics membership, this provides insurance for them to take part. Its paid annually and a child can attend two sessions before committing to the annual membership. For pre-school children the charge is £13/year, for non-competitive its £19/year. More details on all the tariffs can be found here
Can we have a taster session?
All gymnasts who are invited into a class are welcome to trial the class to find out how they find it. We also run holiday camps for non-members, which is ideal for girls wanting to test the sport out.
How do I sign my daughter up for classes?
All our classes are full, and we run a waiting list for new members. To add your daughter to the waiting list please click here. Please make sure you keep our records uptodate, as if we do invite you, and dont hear back, the name will be removed from our list.
