Funding for your school

Everything you need to know about applying for a grant

We award grants to non-fee-paying primary and secondary schools, giving every child access to musical instruments and tuition.

The grants are one-off sums and you have to spend them within 3 months.

There’s a maximum allocation of £10,000 for primary schools and £20,000 for secondaries. You can spend up to one third on tuition.

We’re concentrating on London until we can get enough funding to start supporting the rest of the UK, but feel free to speak to us about how we could possibly help your school.

We always encourage schools to apply for the maximum amount, and every application is carefully considered by the RTM UK Board of Trustees.

The application process

Step 1:
Fill in our pre-grant assessment form and send it to polly@restorethemusic.com.

Step 2:
Once we’ve been through the assessments, we’ll contact eligible schools for a meeting with your Head of Music and Principal of the school. We’ll talk through the current music provision and education in your school, and how you want to grow it with our funding.

Step 3:
The third stage is to submit the grant proposal where you officially apply for specific funding, what you’ll use it for, and what outcomes you expect.

Deadlines

As of 2018, we hold 2 funding rounds a year – usually in May and November.

We’ll announce the next dates once we know more about how the COVID-19 crisis is affecting schools for the rest of the year.
