Christmas Newsletter 2017
Dear Parents

We hope you have had a lovely Christmas and are looking forward to returning to ballet this term.

Please check the timetable carefully to see if there are any changes that affect your child. Please also note that our term starts on Friday 5th January 2018.

We would like to congratulate all those candidates who took their examinations in November. They all worked very hard to achieve their results. We don’t yet have a date for our RAD examinations in the Spring term but if your child is to be entered you will receive a letter shortly – the coaching classes will commence the first week of term.

Unfortunately we will not be able to stage a show at Henry Box School next term as  we have a large group of older girls who will be taking their A levels in the summer and need to take their higher grade RAD exams to gain their UCAS points in the Spring term. Also my two granddaughters who are a great help to me with choreography are taking their exams this summer so will be unable to help this time. All being well we will stage our next show in the Spring of 2019. We will try to arrange a workshop during the coming year to compensate for this.

If you still have any outstanding fees, could you please send me a cheque, with immediate effect, made out to Windrush School of Ballet, to 14 Heath Lane, Bladon, Woodstock, OX20 1SB or  pay via bank transfer at:

Natwest sort code: 55-81-35
Windrush School of Ballet account number: 89001389

I look forward to seeing you all again next term.

Best wishes

Pat Clapton

There will be extra coaching classes for pupils entering the RAD Grade 1 examinations.

These will take place at Ceewood Hall from 11.30 – 12.15, starting on Saturday 6 January and lasting for seven weeks up to half term. At a later date there will be a rehearsal with the pianist.

I have kept the cost of these extra classes as low as possible. They will cost £20 per child and this fee should be paid to our Administrator Angela as soon as possible.

The examination will take place on Saturday 31 March. The time will be given at a later date.

If you have any queries I can be contacted on 01993 812177.
