Membership

The trial membership is £1.97 for 14 days. Your membership starts as soon as you have paid your trial membership fee of £1.97 and gives you full access to all the resources on the site, which you can download, save to your own computer and print off as you so wish.

How your membership continues after the trial period: After the 14-day trial period has ended your membership of TheSchoolRun will automatically continue at the rate of £39.97 for a six-month membership (that’s just £1.54 a week) or £59.97 annually (that's only £1.15 a week), depending on which payment option you select, and thereafter for consecutive six-monthly or annual periods at the then standard rates. All payments will be taken up-front. You will be able to give notice to cancel your membership with effect from the end of your then current subscription period. TheSchoolRun reserves the right to increase the price of membership at any time and will inform members via email should we do so.

Paying for your membership: if you are taking advantage of a 14-day trial, you will pay in full for the offer period in advance. Similarly, when your trial period ends and your membership continues as a full subscription, we will collect your payments every six months or twelve months (as applicable) in advance. If you do not want your subscription to continue at the end of your subscription period, email

to let us know before the date that your subsequent payment is due. Full details of the cost and your payment dates will be provided to you by Worldpay during the subscription process.

Cancellation

Should you wish to cancel your membership at any time, you can do so by contacting Customer Services at

or via the WorldPay site, and no further subscription fees will be taken. Everything you have downloaded will be yours to keep.

Your cancellation will take effect from the day before your next payment would have been due, unless you request an earlier date.

Please be aware that, as the service starts immediately after you subscribe, you do not have the statutory cooling off period during which you may cancel your membership without charge and we are unable to provide refunds in respect of  any subscription fees taken (either in whole or in part).
