95% of our students require some form of financial aid.

Currently we receive funding towards places for 75% of our students through the Government’s Music and Dance Scheme (MDS). The School therefore has to raise funds to support roughly 20% of all students depending on their financial need.


We rely on donations big and small to allow the most talented young musicians from around the world to benefit from the top quality musical and all-round education that the School provides. £42,492 supports a full bursary which covers all academic and 1-2-1 music tuition and boarding for one year.

“My sister and I are both so grateful to receive a donor funded bursary from a couple who support the School. Neither of us would have been able to come here without their help. We can also focus on our music without our parents having to worry about trying to find the money to support us.”
