There must be no infringement of copyright and in all cases of musical entertainment the requirements of the Performing Rights Society must be fulfilled.
The school operates a No Smoking policy throughout its premises and grounds. Hirers agree to abide by this policy.
Before approving any letting for the exhibition of pictures involving the use of films or television, enquires should be made to the appropriate authority to see if a licence is required. Where such a requirement exists, the responsibility for obtaining such a licence is solely the hirers.
Hirers will have access only to the particular room(s) let to them, including where it is practicable the use of toilet accommodation. Access is not permitted to any other part of the premises.
School functions will take precedence over lettings, sometimes at short notice. In the event that the hired area is not available to let on a particular occasion, due to school use, the School will make reasonable efforts to provide a suitable alternative location or dates. If no alternative is available a refund of the letting fee will be made, but no liability for further or consequential loss will be accepted by The School.
Any dispute on the use of facilities or equipment out of normal hours shall be settled by the School Governors.
The Governors reserve the right to revoke without any reason or notice any contract for the hire of the school.
The Governors reserve the right to withdraw without notice permission to use the playing fields when such playing fields are unfit for use.
Tariffs will be reviewed annually and any increases will be implemented on September 1st. If less than four weeks’ notice of increases is given then the notice period by the hirer will be reduced proportionally.
Any invoices which are overdue will be subject to an administrative surcharge of £20 per month outstanding and may result in loss of following bookings.
All regular bookings will incur a charge whether used or not unless written (or email) confirmation is received at least four weeks beforehand that the hirer will not be using the facilities. The charge will be reduced by 50% in the event that the school are able to re-let the booking. No charge will be levied where the notification is received more than four weeks in advance.
