Funded Places for Refugees

Thanks to a generous donation by a local supporter, the Conservatoire is delighted to be able to offer refugees places on our courses and opportunities for individual tuition. 

Broadening access to high-quality tuition in art, music and drama and all of the associated emotional and therapeutic value this provides, is core to our mission, so we are delighted to have the opportunity to provide help and support in this way.

As Summer term is already underway, and many courses were sold out before term began, places are not available on all courses, although we hope to offer more extensive availability for Autumn term. We also have spaces available for our May-June half term courses. If you or your child or a refugee you are hosting enjoyed playing an instrument before arriving in the UK, tuition@conservatoire.org.uk can investigate offering places for individual tuition.
