Support with Fees

We are keen to help families where financial hardship might prevent a child from learning an instrument.

Families in receipt of any of the following benefits may be entitled to receive up to 70% reduction of fees:

  • Income Support
  • Job Seekers Allowance
  • Housing Benefit
  • Council Tax Rebate
  • Free school meals (this criteria only applies to pupils in Y3 upwards)
  • Universal Credit

Please contact us if you feel you may be eligible to receive assistance with fees. We will ask to see written evidence of the benefits you receive. A photocopy is acceptable. In order to confirm eligibility we also reserve the right to consult your child’s head teacher regarding any request for assistance with fees.

Please note that we are only able to offer the reduced fee for one instrument per child.

We are very grateful to Barnes Fund, Hampton Fund Richmond Parish Lands Charity and The Arts Society Richmond for their generous support of our remission scheme.
