NMPAT Duston Centre

We’re back at Duston Centre this academic year! 

Welcome to all of our new members, and welcome back to those returning – it’s great to have you with us and we look forward to what will hopefully be a full year of uninterrupted Centre activities. 

It’s not too late to join us – you can register at any time using this online link: https://bit.ly/NMPATCentres  

Once you’ve completed the online form, John Bickerdike, Centre Head, will be in touch with some more information ahead of your first morning with us. Some classes are already over-subscribed and waiting lists are in operation where this is the case.  This mainly applies to Little Stars (early years) where we also offer weekday classes in Northampton – please click here for more information. 

Students receiving small group or individual tuition with an NMPAT teacher, or students taking a “First Access follow on” project at their school are eligible to receive a fully subsidised first term of activities. 

Families in financial need are encouraged to apply for remission of fees – please ask your Centre Head if you would like to apply. 

Membership subscription of £80 per term is due at the start of each term or £55 per term if the student attends only one session. (A new term begins in September, January and April) 

Our team of staff are excited to be back delivering ensembles and activities that have been designed around our existing membership, ensuring everyone has something of interest to get involved with!  You can see our current timetable below – please remember this is updated regularly, to suit the needs of our students.
