At the end of 2021, Sir John Hunt Community Sports College music department was awarded a £1000 bursary by Universal Music UK Sound Foundation.
Universal Music UK Sound Foundation is an independent music education charity, established in 1997 to celebrate the centenary of EMI Records and now generously supported by Universal Music. The Foundation’s aim is to improve access to music education in the UK and Ireland.
The music department has spent the money on a class-set of high quality ukuleles, as well as buying extra equipment for our successful instrument-loan scheme. The loan scheme was set up to improve access to musical instruments for students at the College. Several students have already benefited from the increase in available instruments, due to the recent grant.
