    The 17th Advanced course was a new short format to prep four candidates for the July session which is aligned with the Bath distance learning course. The Tuesday exam date meant that the usual small hall was occupied, so the very spacious main hall was used.

    The 16th Advanced course culminated in a triple exam session on Dec-7. Three advanced candidates were at the front (far end), with six Intermediates in the middle and one Foundation at the rear(nearest camera) to enable the earlier finishers to leave the room quietly. Signs were set up with start/stop clock images for each set of candidates

    All Foundation and Intermediates were successful and the latter can be seen here

    Advanced Class - Sep-2004
    Class of the Advanced Course, 9th September 2004, in Danbury Village Hall.

    Many of those present were taught at earlier Courses run by the same team - the difference being that it is much more demanding for all concerned. The Syllabus was revised as a result of feedback during this pilot phase

    Class at the end of the Advanced Course, December 2004 - looks colder!
