Fantastic funding from Universal Music UK Sound Foundation!

We are overjoyed this week to find out we have been successful in securing a staggering £6,000 of funding from the Universal Music UK Sound Foundation.

This is not the first time we have received funding from the Universal Music UK Sound Foundation and their support to our school over many years has enabled us to provide lots of facilities, equipment and opportunities for our students. Our success in their 2019-2020 round of annual music education funding is part of a long-term partnership with them and will again allow us increase the musical opportunities we offer our students.

We have huge plans for this funding and couldn’t be more excited. Half of the funding will be used to purchase a set of iMac computers, iPads and ‘Reason’ software for the students in Music and Music Technology to create our very own ‘Mac Lab’. This will allow our students to produce tracks and amend existing work. Our ‘Mac Lab’ will also be used to develop a video library, populated by the students, to assist the learning others.

The other half of the funding will be used to provide selected students, who show promise in specific musical areas, with individual tuition sessions.
