We do not have a service for collection or drop-off at airports or train stations. You will be required to make your own arrangements to travel to Guildhall School.
We try our best to accommodate as many participants as possible, though please note that residential spaces are limited and allocated on a first come first served basis. Should we not be able to facilitate your booking, you will be notified via email and a full refund will be issued.
Guildhall Summer Schools are very popular among children and young people, many of whom travel from all over the UK and internationally to attend our courses.
During their stay at Sundial court, residential participants under the age of 18 are looked after by our team of dedicated chaperones, all of whom are DBS checked and first-aid trained. The team is led by our experienced Lead Chaperone. As well as pastoral care, chaperones also organise some evening activities.
Residential participants under the age of 18 are exclusively allocated rooms in single-sex under-18 flats. For health and safety reasons these flats do not have access to kitchen facilities.
