Bedford School Full Terms and Conditions

Cancellation of contract for educational services

If your contract with the Trust was formed entirely by means of distance communication (i.e. by post, fax or electronic communication) without a face to face meeting with a member of the Trust or School staff you may cancel the contract within 14 days.  The place was accepted when we received the acceptance form duly completed and signed by you. The 14 day cancellation period will commence on the day following our receipt of your completed and signed acceptance form.

To exercise your right to cancel, you must inform us at the Trust address of your decision to cancel this contract by a clear statement (e.g. a letter sent by post or fax, or an email).  You may use the attached model cancellation form, or your own wording if you prefer. You do not have to provide a reason for cancellation when informing the Trust.

To meet the cancellation deadline you must send your communication concerning your exercise of the right to cancel before the cancellation period has expired.

Effects of cancellation

a) Where we have provided educational services

If, following your acceptance of a place and payment of the Acceptance Deposit [• and the Additional Deposit (if applicable)], we provide educational services to your child, and then you choose to cancel the contract before the 14 day period expires, you will be liable to pay to us our reasonable costs.  These will be the costs for the actual services provided up to the time you communicate to us your cancellation of the contract, calculated as a proportion of the termly fees. We will return to you, after deduction of our reasonable costs, the balance of fees and any deposit(s) paid.
