Open sessions

  • By booking an open session you are agreeing that you/the participant are at a skill level where you/they can use the skatepark features or are able to make informed decisions about how and when to use the skatepark features.

Group lessons

  • At least 24 hours notice is required if you want to change your booking. A credit note will be offered to the value of your booking. If less than 24 hours notice is given we cannot guarantee a credit note as there is no guarantee we can fill the space.

Private lessons

  • Service Level Agreement – Coaches will respond to messages within 24 hours.
  • At least 2 hours notice is required to change a private lesson booking. After this timeframe it is down to School of Skate Management’s discretion as to whether they will either honour the booking at another time at a 50% discount. The management are not obliged to offer this however.
  • In the event of a no show with no contact, the coach will wait 15 mins before the lesson is cancelled. No refund will be due.
  • If a School of Skate Management does not provide 2 hours notice of a change of plan, you will receive a 50% discount refunded to your account to recompense you for your time and your booking will be honoured at another time.

Skate camp

  • If you are later than 15 mins to collect your child there is a charge of £15 for every 15 mins that passes after the due collection time. If a child is not collected, or contact cannot be established via the details provided by the customer, Southwark Social Services will be contacted after 60 mins has passed.
