How we are funded

While we are an independent school, we believe that talent is classless and that opportunities to access elite classical ballet training should be available to the most talented students, regardless of their financial circumstances.

We are grateful to:

The Department of Education for the Music and Dance Scheme (MDS) award, a means-tested scheme which supports all of the costs of training with us for Lower School students;

The Education and Skills Agency for the Dance and Drama Award (DaDA), a scheme which covers the direct costs of dance training for Upper School students;

Our many donors whose generosity enables us to provide bursaries for those students in need; choreography; outreach; and to stage live performances.
