    The school has absolutely no rights at all to know anything.
    But unless you give a very believable reason, rather than something vague, they may well resent you breaking your contract at this stage.

  2. Yes. It costs the school time and money to make another appointment - and possibly to re-advertise and re-interview. You would have broken the contract you have made with them, and they would be enttitled to seek damages from you for the loss they incurred. Remember that a contract does not have to be in writing to be enforceable in law.
