All pupils receive assistance with music tuition costs. Uniform grants, travel grants and free school meals are also available to those eligible.

At present, 900 places are available in Year 7 and a test is held early in the Autumn Term for those seeking admission the following September.

PARENTS SHOULD READ THE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY AND NOTE THAT ONE FORM REGISTERS THEIR CHILD FOR THE TEST AND ANOTHER MUST BE SENT TO THEIR LOCAL AUTHORITY.
