The Conservatoire couldn't operate without some of the invaluable support we get from local businesses and trusts. Check out below the great people who keep us going!

John Payne

John Payne have been involved with the Conservatoire for many years. Their brand values place a high value on being part of the local community and their donations to the Conservatoire have focused on making us an ever more accessible and attractive focal point for the community. Over the years they have sponsored our Winter Wonderland events, children’s art exhibitions and improvements including a new playhouse in the garden and automatic doors for ease of entry. This year they are focusing on further interactive improvements to the Creativity Garden and making the front garden a more appealing and inspiring space.

Peter Harris Trust

The Trust has generously sponsored our flagship bursary scheme. Their donation of £40,000 has enabled some 50 students from some of the most challenging parts of the communities we serve to access individual and group music, art and drama tuition. The funding has helped children to benefit from transformative, high quality tuition, including learners with special educational needs, those caring for ill parents, and those in foster care.

Aston Lark

Aston Lark have been very generous in sponsoring two main areas of our work. They have provided funding for bursaries on our Early Years Programme, enabling 12 of our youngest learners a chance to access creative opportunities. At the other end of the age range, Lark are building on their existing relationship with Dementia UK by funding some of our ongoing work with Age Exchange using musical reminiscence to support people in care homes.

ALW Foundation

Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation

We are delighted to announce that the Conservatoire has been successful in a recent bid to the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation to grow our outreach and community work. We were awarded £40,000 over two years, funding which will ensure that this central part of our vision can begin to become a reality. The money will be used to support our expanding bursary scheme, and will enable us to increase our reach into those areas of Greenwich and Lewisham that most need us, working with schools, charities and community groups. We are currently planning some exciting projects with local partners and our other commercial sponsors, and will be announcing a new round of our bursary scheme in the Spring.

Alongside individual donors, these charitable trusts and specialist instrument insurers provide over £30,000 worth of annual funding for our Bursaries.

We benefit from both funding and advice and training from a number of grants and organisations, including Whole Child TherapyAtkins HopeBluebird Care and Grant Saw.
