At the Music School local to Quiz Master Shop Towers, weekly tuition costs £1,100 per year for primary school pupils (under 11) and £1,700 for secondary school pupils (11 and over). It has a good reputation and many parents are prepared to pay for the lessons.
There is a means-tested bursary available to pay the fees for gifted children whose parents are not able to afford them, which was set up by a local benefactor. The bursaries are limited to a small number of children, and the competition to receive one when one becomes free is very fierce.
Last year the cost of the bursaries was £20,000 and it has risen to £23,000 this year.
How many pupils are receiving bursaries?
