Group Courses Terms & Conditions
The Education Hotel’s Courses
The Education Hotel acts to provide courses online and tutors from their team, offering bespoke tuition. The Education Hotel is the owner of the material produced for these courses.
You (the client) agree to not copy or repurpose the content in any way. Including, but not limited to, distributing recordings of the lessons to friends and family.
You agree not to directly or indirectly engage or offer to engage, the tutor to provide tuition to you on any basis other than through The Education Hotel.
We regret to advise that if you breach this agreement, you agree to pay The Education Hotel the sum of £1000 as liquidated damages and any commission found or estimated to be due. You agree and accept that this sum represents a reasonable estimate of The Education Hotel’s loss arising from your breach of our contract and monitoring of its potential occurrence.
At the beginning of the course a register will be taken. If you cannot attend a lesson, please contact your relevant branch here so that we can inform the tutor in advance.
Each session is recorded for safeguarding purposes. If your child did not attend the session, you will have 7 days in which to request a recording of the session. No refunds will be given for a child missing the session.
As per the booking instructions, during term time trials must be taken within 7 days of booking. This means that you will be expected to attend the next available class. If you book a trial outside of the class term time, or in the holidays, you will be required to wait until the course begins and will take your trial on the first day that the classes resume. Please make sure you are available before booking a trial lesson.
Our trials are a way for your child to see if they would like to join our group programme, and for our tutors to work out if your child will fit into the group programme. We regret that there are times where a child may not be a good fit for the programme and we will have to ask you to find another option for learning.
Arriving Late to a Course
We regret that if your child is late, we may not be able to let them into the class until the break, so please be prompt. We recommend arriving 10 minutes early. The course will not be restarted for any late student.

If you cannot enter a online lesson, please take a screenshot and email this directly to email@example.com with the title ‘URGENT – Course’. If this is within the first 10 minutes of the course starting, our team will try to assist you in joining the lesson.
Accessing the Course
Online courses will be run via Zoom, and you must be logged into Zoom to access the course. Please ensure that your child has their own login for Zoom, strong WIFI signal and headphones to ensure they can hear the tutor. Please also ensure that your child has pencils and paper for notes/working out. If your child does not have the appropriate materials for the lesson and cannot access the lesson, The Education Hotel will not be held accountable.
In person courses will be held at a venue made clear before booking. Venue locations and their information can be viewed here. You will be responsible for dropping your child off and picking them up. Tutors will not walk your child to a drop off point.
We expect our students to adhere to polite behaviour. Zoom chat and student usernames etc., will be monitored over the course of the week. Any student found to be exhibiting inappropriate behaviour (including rudeness towards others, silly and off-putting behaviour) will be given a warning and excluded without refund from the course upon the second instance. In the event of a threat made against another student or member of staff, the student will be excluded with no warning. In these cases, The Education Hotel’s decision is final.
How to Pay – Termly classes
Clients must commit to paying for the term when signing up for a termly course. If your child misses a class they will recieve the recording of the session, if a request is made within 7 days of the class.
