Waiting List terms and conditions

Please read these terms and conditions in full – you accept these when you ask to join our waiting list.


Our club places are offered on a first-come-first-served basis, strictly by date of joining the waiting list for a given club and year of entry.

A place on the waiting list is not a guarantee of an offer of a place.

You must complete a waiting list form for each child in the case of siblings, including where they will both be joining the same club list (eg for twins or triplets).


Year 5 clubs running in the current academic year are open to new joiners if a space is available. 

This is a change from previous years as we now have revision/catch-up material available to students. We do ask all new joiners to access the previous lesson to their first session and complete the content (including the homework). This will allow them to hit the ground running and help us to assess quickly whether they will be able to manage within the established club.

Where a current club is accepting new joiners, we will let you know availability, or add you to our waiting list if there is no availability at the time you ask to join.


Enrolment for future academic years usually opens from April.

Places are offered first to students already attending a Griffin Teaching club. We then open enrolment to new students and notify parents on the waiting list.

This is done strictly in order of their joining the waiting list for that club and year of entry.


When a place is available and you are at the top of the waiting list, we will email you.

You must respond to accept the offer within two working days of notification or the place will be offered to another parent (although we will do our best to contact you in that time if we haven’t heard from you at first).

Acceptance of the offer is not a guarantee of a place. Places are secured only when full parental consent forms and payment are received, as per out main terms and conditions.
