There are 2 terms per year (culminating with a production each term)
Pantomime Term runs from approx 2nd Saturday in September until first weekend of the following January.
Summer Term runs from the end of January/beginning of February until mid June.
Current class timings :
|CLASS A1||9.00 – 9.45||4 to 6.5 year olds|
|CLASS A2||9.45 – 10.30||4 to 6.5 year olds|
(these classes are identical – they are small in size, and a short class time to reflect the concentration levels of the youngest age group)
|CLASS B||10.30 – 11.15||6.5 to 7.5 years|
|CLASS C||11.15 – 12.15||7.5 to 9 years|
|CLASS D||12.15 – 1.15||9 to 11 years|
|SENIORS||1.15 – 2.15||11+ years|
Classes are split in to different age categories. The ages are combined and not restricted to school year groups. Children are placed in the most suitable group for them firstly considering their age and then their ability. In order to develop a child’s confidence it is important for them to be placed where they can feel happy, relaxed and able to thrive.
There are a limited number of places in each class, thus it is not always possible for every child within a school year to progress to another age group if the places are all filled. Wherever possible, and with enough notice, HCT will always try to accommodate everyone and alter class splits and timings if necessary.
Saturday classes are held at Sacred Heart Parish Hall, Walton Avenue, Henley on Thames, RG9 1HT
Productions are held at the Kenton Theatre, New Street, Henley on Thames, RG9 2BP
