West Sussex Music Trust Bursary Fund

Providing your child attends a West Sussex maintained school (local authority, academy or free school), there is a scheme to help with the fees for your child's music education with West Sussex Music:

  • 100% reduction for group lessons [one instrument only], Music Centre fees and the provision of a hire instrument, without charge to the parent / carer, for Children in Care for the duration of the West Sussex Music lessons. Parents / Carers will be asked to confirm the eligibility of children from the appropriate local authority.

If you think you may qualify for financial assistance, please email

Pupils receiving Individual lessons are not eligible for financial help from the Bursary Fund.
