Recreational Classes 

Assessment and Joining

To join Oxford school of Gymnastics bring your child to an assessment session on a FRIDAY evening. All children interested in joining our recreational classes need to attend one of these sessions to be added to our waiting list. THERE IS NO NEED TO BOOK. Children must be at least 4 yrs old to attend the assessment.

All assessment sessions will be on a Friday at 6.15pm.

The cost is 2 per child and this should be handed in at the start of the assessment along with your application form - which you will be given to complete on arrival.

The duration of the assessment will depend on how many children are participating in the class but it usually lasts around 30 minutes.

Children should wear either a leotard or shorts and T-shirt for assessments and jewelry including ear-rings should be removed or if newly pierced, taped up.

The Club uniform is compulsory for all our recreational gymnasts once you have been given a place in a class.

All sessions take place at Lord Williams's Lower School, Towersey Road, Thame, OX9 3NW. We are located in the main school building in the school hall.

ASSESSMENT DAYS - PLEASE NOTE THESE ARE NOT EVERY WEEK - Please check that your assessment session is on prior to leaving.

Friday 9th November - at 6.15pm

Friday 23rd November - at 6.15pm

There will be no further assessment sessions until Jan 2019

Further assessment dates will be added later. Please check back later.

Please note that parents/guardians are not allowed in the gym during the assessment process.

There is a fee of 2 per child for the assessment. Please bring the correct change.

It is difficult to predict how long the wait will be until we have a space available as it depends on many variables. Generally, the maximum waiting time is usually a year from attending an assessment. Once a place has become available we will contact you offering you a place in the appropriate grouping for your son/daughter.

Should you have any questions regarding this process please get in touch via email, otherwise we look forward to welcoming you to one of the sessions outlined above.

Classes and Groupings

All our classes focus on developing a basic level of fitness as well as teaching body awareness through gymnastic activities. All classes follow a similar format and incorporate simple acrobatic gymnastics as well as teaching individual gymnastic skills.

We have 4 levels of classes which will cater for all ages and abilities.

'Young Beginners' classes which is especially for our young starters. This class will either be a 45 mins or 60 mins.

'Beginners' is for children who are starting gymnastics at a slightly older age.

'Novice' sessions are 60 minutes and are suitable for for those with some experience who are not yet ready to move to intermediate level work.

'Intermediate' for those who have achieved at least badge 2.

'Advanced' for those who have achieved badge 1 and are working towards bronze, silver and gold badges. Gymnasts are invited to attend this class.

Once we have seen your child for an assessment session your name will be added to the waiting list of the class which we feel will be most suitable.

All members now need to enrol directly with BG to ensure they are insured for the year.

Our recreational gymnastic terms begin in September, January and April and generally coincide with the school breaks. 

We usually begin enrollment for new members 2-4 weeks before the start of the new term.  For existing members, places need to be reserved 4 weeks ahead of the new term.  It is not possible to be added to our waiting list without coming to an assessment. Once you are on our waiting list we will contact you when spaces become available.
