SUBSCRIPTION - What is a subscription?
Our subscriptions are rolling on a 12 monthly basis that are subject to change every August depending on how many sessions across the year are taught from September to July (excluding school holidays). These increases/decreases will be minimal, and you will be notified before, if any changes will occur starting August 1st of each year. You will only ever be charged for the classes that you have signed up for.
SUBSCRIPTION - When does the subscription run from and to?
The subscription will run from August 1st to July 31st every year. The monthly fee is based on the total number of weeks taught throughout the whole year. A one-off cover charge will be added to the start of any subscription started after August 1st to ensure all classes are paid for. You will only ever pay for the number of classes attended, including the 4 week cancellation period, should you wish to cancel. A refund will be processed if you have overpaid.
SUBSCRIPTION - How do I set up my subscription?
Once you have booked your child into the class online, an email will be sent to you with step by step instructions.
SUBSCRIPTION - Can I only pay by direct debit?
Yes, subscriptions are only set up as a direct debit.
SUBSCRIPTION - Why have I been charged a covering payment?
A covering payment is an additional one-off charge that is added to your first monthly subscription if you have started classes after the 1st of the month. Your monthly subscription price is based on your child doing 12 months of our classes between August 1st and July 31st (excluding school holidays). If your child signs up at any point after the first payment run on August 1st, your first payment will only start from the 1st of the following month therefore any outstanding fees will be added as a cover charge to your first payment.
SUBSCRIPTION - What happens if I miss a payment?
If we were unable to collect your monthly subscription payment on the 1st of the month, we will attempt to take payment 3 days later, and then 5 days thereafter. After which, we will attempt to phone and e-mail you explaining that the insurance for your child is void unless payment is received and you will receive a letter chasing payment through your child at class. Unfortunately if we do not have contact from you following this, we will have no choice but to cancel your subscription and class place for your child. Please contact the Admin team on 0203 1982680 immediately to resolve any issues.
CANCELLATIONS - How much notice do I need to give to cancel my subscription?
Please note that we require a minimum of 1 months notice from the 1st of every month. For example, if you give notice on the 19th October, your payment on the 1st of November will still come out and you will be entitled to stay in class until the end of November.

These are not refundable. Most classes do have waiting lists therefore should a child not attend a trial and we are not informed, we will assume that the child does not want his/her place and we will offer that place to the next person on the waiting list.

If a student requires something urgently please get in touch with us and we can arrange for a coach to keep the property with him/herself and you can collect it at the next available class and venue that week.
CLASS INFORMATION - What should my child wear?
Comfortable clothes which are easy to move in. Our classes are very active and the hall can get warm so if your child gets hot quickly, they should wear shorts and a T-shirt. We have Good Life Gymnastics merchandise which isn't compulsory but is perfect for the class, availble to buy within the gyms and online. The children are barefoot during the class therefore wearing shoes which are easy to remove and put on again after class can save time.

Long hair should always be tied back and all jewllery removed before the class for your child's safety and comfort.
CLASS INFORMATION - What should my child bring?
A filled water bottle to all classes.

HINCHLEY WOOD - We have a very small waiting area at the entrance of the school withe few chair for parents however we encourage a drop off system for your children where possible. We kindly ask that your child brings as little as possible with them as they can only bring a water bottle into the gym hall with them. We would suggest that you leave all jewellery and other valuables at home.
WORKSHOPS/BOOSTER COURSES - What happens if I have to cancel my child's booking for a workshop/booster course?
Our general policy is to ask for one week's writtten notice which must be given in the event of cancelling either a week or day workshop booking, otherwise you will be charged the full amount for that booking. If a week or more notice is given, then a 95% refund will be made. The 5% reduction will be passed on to our supplier who charges us a refund administration fee. This is not kept by Good Life Gymnastics. If there are extenuating circumstances, we will endeavour to be as flexible as possible in rebooking you on to a workshop on another day/week. This will be subject to availability and only to be used within the same school holiday. This will be subject to our "Rearranging of Workshops" policy found in our T & C's.
