Apply for SWMS

We have a formal application process from March through to the end of May.
However, if you are interested in joining SWMS during an academic year please get in touch with Tracy Hill to discuss further.


Our Young Musicians Programme is open to all children and young people, whatever their circumstances. To cover the fees, SWMS students can apply for a means-tested grant from the DfE’s Music & Dance Scheme.


We can accept new students from the age of 7, up to and including those who are 16 years of age. Need more information? Check out our FAQ page by clicking on the link below:
