Latest news and events: Spring Term 2017 courses start on Monday 16 January.

Join our happy and satisfied band of Wyedean learners. Recent students have rated their experience extremely highly. For instance, on a Spanish language class, one happy student loved "The pace of learning, understanding and encouragement from teacher and fellow pupils. Teaching was excellent".

On the Excel course, a student liked "...the tutor's participation with the group or individual student and involvement..." Another tutor was appreciated for being "patient, encouraging and imaginative" and liked best about the course the "unexpected and innovative".

A student on the Silversmithing Jewellery for All course, said that she had gained so much "I was able to develop my ability to create my vision and also my well-being from the social side".

Overall, the relaxed atmosphere in classes was flagged up - the friendliness of the group making people feel at ease; how much fun it was to learn; appreciation of the knowledge of the teachers.

Look forward to a fantastic and wide choice of courses:

NEW FOR SPRING: Well Being through Mindfulness; Make the most of Google Apps; Discovering Archaeology: Landscape Archaeology; Back, Neck & Shoulder Massage; Italian.

Your Health - your responsibility
If in doubt about the state of your health and fitness before undertaking a course, particularly Yoga, Fitness classes, Pilates, Dance, etc - please consult your GP. In addition, inform your tutor at the start of the class or let us know beforehand.

Course Viability
We need a minimum number of students to ensure that a class is viable.

For instance, you pay the full cost of the course, but the number of weeks is reduced by one or two depending of the class size.

We will issue a full refund in the event that a class is cancelled by us. If you opt out of a class once you have paid, we do not normally issue a refund. In reasonable circumstances, however, we will issue a refund, less an administration fee of £5.00.
