We have sent out over 2500 electronic requests and so far almost half of those we have contacted have successfully navigated the online membership renewal process.If the renewal request has been passed to you by someone else and you are not sure what to do next, give us a ring (01895 251496) and ask us to resend the renewal directly to you. That way you can simply click on the link in the e-mail to access the online portal. 

If your school has not renewed its membership by the end of January, membership will lapse and your password will stop working.
