Help with fees

  • We can pay half the cost of a lesson for any primary school child eligible for free school meals.
  • If you receive Council Tax Support or Housing Benefit we may be able to pay half the cost for children in years 3, 4, 5 and 6. The money for this is generously provided by Universal Music Group for the academic year 2022 - 23.
  • At secondary school you will need to speak to the head of music to ask if there is help with fees.

When we are able to offer a lesson we will confirm your eligibility with the benefit department, or ask you to provide proof.
