You can enrol online or you can call our Enrolment Hotline on 020 7364 5665. Lines are open 10am – 4.30pm Monday to Friday.

Please note we cannot facilitate telephone enrolments for concessionary fees, as we need to provide proof of concession.


How to Enrol Online

To enrol online, first find your course using our Course Search and then click on the ‘Enrol’ button. This will take you to our enrolment system. There you will register to create an account. If you are paying a concession you must provide your evidence, by uploading it to the system. If you enrol on a course that is fully booked you will be automatically added to the waiting list.

Enrolment for Fitness Courses

At present, due to Covid-19, we have restricted numbers on our classroom-based fitness classes. In order to ensure that as many people as possible have a chance on enrolling onto a course, we have offered short 5 week courses [Part 1 and Part 2]. If you are interested in joining a course, can you please only enrol on one fitness course this term either Part 1 or Part 2. This applies to classroom-based courses only, you are not restricted to just one course if you want to join online classes.
