Little Ladies and Gents EXTRA
Our Little Ladies and Gents EXTRA course empowers children with social skills, helping to build their confidence and form meaningful, positive relationships with others in all walks of life. It also gives children the tools they need to shine with confidence when conducting themselves in various settings (social and academic).
This is a suitable follow on course if your child has attended Little Ladies or Little Gents and would like to learn more, but newcomers to The Sunningdale Academy are more than welcome to join us. The order in which the courses are taken does not affect the child's learning.
Each weekly session runs for 2.5 hours (including a full meal) on either a Saturday or Sunday.
We engage leading subject matter experts.
