CLASS AVAILABILITY AND WAITING LISTS
Please see below for our current class availability.
If the required class at your preferred centre is full, you may be offered a place at an alternative centre. Choosing a second choice centre will increase the chances of being offered a place.
If your preferred centre is full, it is usually quicker to join a different centre then transfer over to your preferred centre at a later date. Enrolled students who wish to transfer to another class or centre take priority over the waiting list.
When accepting a place, please be aware it may not be possible to transfer to a different class or centre until the beginning of the next academic year.

How do we allocate places in our classes?
Places are generally offered in strict order of when a trial request is received. However, in order to keep our classes balanced we also consider other factors, including:
- School Year – Our classes need to maintain a good balance of ages;
- Goals and Aims – We reserve a certain number of places in each class for each of the categories shown in the Goals drop-down selection below.
TRIAL CLASS INFORMATION AND DEPOSITS
Our trial classes take place over 2 WEEKS, usually the first 2 days of each term. Children should be available for both weeks.
WEEK 1: We prefer parents to watch this class while children take part.
WEEK 2: Children will take part in the class but parents will not be able to watch.
A non-refundable deposit will be required to secure your Musical Theatre trial class. The deposit is £30 per child for ACT 1 and £50 per child for ACT 2 and ACT 3. We will not request this deposit from you until we are able to offer you a trial class.
Payment of a trial class deposit guarantees your child’s place at the specific trial date(s) they have been invited to, and guarantees their continuing place at Sharpe Academy if they join after the trial. Our trial classes are fixed to the first 2 weeks of each term, we cannot offer any alternative dates. Deposits are non-refundable if you are unable to attend your scheduled trial classes for any reason, including illness, but will be deducted from your first term's fees if you choose to continue and join Sharpe Academy at the end of your trial classes. A deposit cannot be carried over to a future trial class.
If you accept a trial class invitation, we will send you details of how to pay the deposit which must be received by us before the first trial class date. Sharpe Academy reserves the right to offer your place to the next person on the waiting list if the deposit has not been received.
We currently do not require a deposit for a Company audition, or if you already have a child enrolled at Sharpe Academy.
