All Devon & Torbay maintained schools and academies benefit from 100% subsidised access to instruments and resources to support the delivery of Whole Class Ensemble Tuition (WCET) and projects – over 14,000 instruments have been loaned to schools over the last year allowing thousands of children and young people to take the first steps in their musical journey. A wide range of digital resources to support WCET can be accessed using Charanga Music School, which is provided on a 100% subsidised basis to all Devon & Torbay maintained primary and special schools and academies. Additional support can often be provided by the Music Development Lead for your area and the Hub provides regular CPD opportunities for instrumental and curriculum practitioners.
Booking your instruments
Devon and Torbay maintained schools and academies can borrow one instrument class set each term free of charge. Additional sets are charged at £91.80 (plus VAT for academies and Torbay maintained schools). Instruments can be booked for longer periods by arrangement. Delivery and collection of instrument class sets is provided.
Private schools and those from other Local Authority areas can also borrow instrument class sets, and these are also charged at £91.80 (plus VAT for LA schools), but delivery and collection is not included.
All bookings are subject to availability of stock.
