Hi Alex good to hear from you. No it was a private school.
I had a contract to give a terms notice in writing. If you can let me know exactly what I should do it would be much appreciated.
Hi Alex, I am trying to find the original contract I will have a search today have just moved house. I can only find the bursary confirmation letter that was sent on the 25th June. But I remember it was a terms notice and be charged for the full term. I have paid £7,000 up to date but still have an outstanding amount of £1,500 but as the school went into liquidation without paying the teachers redundancy as well as not giving us notice to find a new school including emotional distress I wondered if there was a way of covering myself legally so they don't start chasing me for the money. I dont think the contract mentioned anything about what happens if the school closes down.
Yes that is correct it is no longer running as a school the directors have taken over and are turning the property into apartments
Does this mean I still have to pay them the outstanding money? Should I send them a letter and negotiate something possibly? Many thanks will leave feedback
The directors who have taken over the school have sent me a letter with a closing account. Do you think I should send them a letter with an arrangement? Is there anything you can suggest that could lower the amount due to transferring school etc? many thanks again
ok so that means if they have sent me a letter including a closing account that means I have to pay the full amount shown is that correct? Do you think best I pay and send a letter to get rid of it as I don't need the hassle of anyone chasing me for the money or any nasty letters etc.
Yes that does help thank you very much
