Music on Sea have been able to allocate some money from the Arts Council England fund to offer as a bursary for those students that aren't eligible for Pupil Premium funding but might find it difficult to fund a term's worth of lessons, to join an ensemble/group or take part in other musical activities.
The deadline for applications for the Autumn term is 31st May.
Once received, applications will be reviewed by a Board and applicants will be contacted by the end of June regarding the decision.
The form can be downloaded from the Music on Sea website (www.musiconsea.co.uk/applyingforsupport). The first half of the form is to be completed by the parent and the second part by the school.
If you have any questions relating to the bursary or form please contact Music on Sea on email@example.com or 01702 215861.
