Student Services

When undertaking study it is important that the learning is the focus of your attention to achieve the most out of the experience.

However, we understand that as a student in a new environment, there are many other issues that need to be considered. We are always happy to provide support and guidance to help our students deal with any obstacles. We have a register of contacts who are qualified to provide support in their specialist areas such as health, language, finance, accommodation, transport and immigration.

Various types of accommodation is available throughout Balderton and Newark depending on your requirements and length of stay. There are residential homes, flats, bedsits and rooms available through a number of Letting Agencies and the latest information can be found at rightmove. There are also a number of very good Bed & Breakfasts and Hotels in the local area if you are planning on attending a shorter course.

In particular there is a beautiful 3 bedroom cottage right across the road called Inglenook Cottage where full details can be found at their website. Our students are offered a discount so please mention you are intending to study at Chapel Violins School of Violin Making when you contact them.

We are also happy to highly recommend The Vicarage B&B where Linda and Tony have been exceptional hosts to a number of our previous students.

If you prefer we can assist you in making arrangements for your accommodation and have included a section for you to complete on the application form.

We have a policy of inclusion for all students, such that if there are any adjustments or requirements that you have which will make your learning experience more rewarding, please let us know and we can provide more flexible teaching, adapted resources and/or specialist equipment.

If you are planning to visit The Old Chapel, please contact us and if you are arriving by train we can make arrangements for transport from the Newark Stations. If you are travelling by car, we can provide directions, or you are welcome to visit our Contact & Find Us page where detailed maps and written directions can be found.
