It would be a good idea to bring a bottle of water as some classes are physical, other than this please do not bring food or drink.

If you must bring a mobile phone it must be switched off and either handed in or left with your belongings – in which case we can not be held responsible for it.

We expect a certain amount of self discipline. This is important as regards the safety of you and others in the group.

  • No jeans, skirts, jewellery or caps.
  • Wear loose black trousers, uniform hoody or t shirt (available to buy) or plain black top, trainers or pumps.
