We are nearly on our 17th summer course! Wishing all te students and teachers a lovely restful week before the intense schedule begins! Can't wait to have you all back in Dunsford!



Another wonderful summer course and what a standard!  The faculty were second to NONE and every student worked so hard, it was a pleasure to see everyone inprove and grown during the week. We will upload photos as soon as they're edited.  Please keep in touch during the year and let us know how your training is going. Many thanks to all the parents who allow their sons and daughters to attend each year.



Well, it seems like the course was a great success!  I was thrilled with the level of the students and teaching last week and am very grateful for all the lovely feedback being sent to me t the moment.  I hope you've all recovered now!  The dates for next year's course are 4th-8th August (though I am waiting for clearance for myself from Phantom) so please put the dates in your diaries now.  It was lovely to hear some of the students are saving already to attend next summer!  There is no course like it.  Xx

Thank you!
