Bursary Scheme

Support towards course fees for families with a lower household income

If your family’s gross household income is £40,000 per year or under, you will be eligible to apply for a bursary towards your course fee for the summer productions. The scheme works on a sliding scale so that people who are the most in need receive the most help, and the upper end is discretionary depending on the funds we have available in any one year. Please note that the Bursary Scheme is only for those who have successfully auditioned and have been offered a place on one of our productions, and are not for any other courses.

“Thanks to the bursary scheme, I was given a chance that I would never have been able to partake in due to financial circumstances and I wish that many other young people will be able to have this experience, especially if they have a passion for the performing arts.” (Tarique, 16, from Birmingham, performed in A Teenage Opera) READ ABOUT TARIQUE'S EXPERIENCE ON THE BLOG

“Receiving a bursary has allowed me the opportunity to be part of an incredible experience, one that I simply wouldn’t have had without this fantastic scheme.”
