Frequently asked questions:

Q: Why doesn’t Jasspa publish lesson times for group classes such as Dance and Drama during summer term enrolment?
A: Each year we construct a timetable around the pupils who apply to us. This means that all our class sizes are well managed, we can accommodate new pupils joining us and current pupils are able to change their selection of classes ahead of the new school year without having long gaps between lessons.

Q: Why do you ask for a year’s commitment for some courses?
A: It is really important to give time for pupils to settle into classes. For example, in the autumn Dance and Drama lessons are structured to be workshop / technique based and in the the spring and summer terms they are performance based. When starting a new musical instrument it is important to give time for settling down to practice and getting used to the instrument.

Q: After applying for a place during annual enrolment, when will I hear back from Jasspa?
A: If your application is straightforward and we can offer you all the classes you have requested you will hear from us mid-late July. If your application is more complicated (for example you might have requested lessons at a specific time due to other commitments) we might be in touch sooner to discuss options. If you have not heard back from us by the end of July your letter may have got lost in the post. Please do contact us if this happens to you!

Q: If I have applied for more than one class will my lessons be close together?
A: Most pupils who do two or more lessons with us either have enough time to get to and from lessons or a short wait between classes. No-one is expected to wait more than 30 mins between lessons and the majority of pupils wait for up to 15 mins.

Q: When does the new year start?
A: Saturday 7 September 2019
