Each year our four teaching terms line up with normal school terms and so regular weekly classes usually go for 39-40 weeks a year. Occasionally due to personal circumstances โ€“ such as a planned family holiday – a franchisee may run a shorter term than normal. Some franchisees also run free come and try demonstration days in the school holidays. Demonstrations in the school holidays are highly recommended as an effective way of growing oneโ€™s business but are not a mandatory for franchisees.
