Payment options

We offer several ways to pay for your young writer’s subscription: debit or credit card, monthly direct debit and bank transfer. 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.

Bank transfer

To pay by bank transfer please get in touch with us and will email you with the bank details. Don’t forget to use your child’s name as the reference for the payment. This will help us to tie your payment to your booking. Each session is £9 per session, so if the group has only 9 sessions remaining, please pay £81, if 8 sessions are left you will need to pay £72. You can see how many sessions are remaining by looking at the date list – if you have any questions, please get in touch.

Monthly Direct Debit payments

We use GoCardless to handle our direct debit payments. You can pay for one child 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.
