Payment options

We offer two ways to pay for your young writer’s subscription: you can pay the whole amount by debit or credit card, or monthly direct debit. The option to pay by debit or credit card is presented during the booking process. Please get in touch with us if you missed this and would like to pay by card.

Monthly Direct Debit payments

We use GoCardless to handle our direct debit payments. You can pay for one child or two children by monthly direct debit. Direct Debit payments are covered by the Direct Debit guarantee and can be cancelled at any time. If you cancel, you will need to make payment in a different way if your child wishes to continue participating in the sessions. Select the relevant payment plan for the correct number of sessions remaining. If you are unsure which to select, please get in touch with us.

Monthly Direct Debit options  – 10 month subscription

You can pay for one child or two children by setting up the relevant Direct Debit mandate – linked below. It will take 10 monthly payments of £9 per child to pay for the sessions taking place in the new academic year. Payments will be taken on or shortly after 2nd of the month.
