Instrumental tuition is provided weekly for 35 weeks per year by peripatetic music teachers. These staff are carefully selected and well-qualified specialist teachers.
Lessons last 20 minutes and are on a one to one basis.
All instruments must be covered by an adequate insurance policy of accidental damage, loss or theft. Wickersley School and Sports College is unable to accept liability for any loss or damage to instruments.
Please ensure your son/daughter’s instrument is clearly labelled with his/her name and address. Instruments should be left at the appropriate place in the Music Department and should be taken home at the end of each day.
Fees For Lessons
Each pupil is to pay a set contribution towards the cost of lessons (the rest will be subsidised by the school). This will be the same for all pupils, regardless of which instrument they learn or how many other pupils share the lesson (maximum of two pupils in a group).
Fees will be charged as a half termly lump sum to be billed prior to the beginning of each term or half term, and payment must be received before lessons can be taken. Parents will be asked to sign an agreement to these terms before committing to the lessons.
Fees for the instruments below are £10.00 per lesson, per instrument.
How to Pay
Our finance department will activate a payment on parent pay or barcoded letters will be available to make payment via PAYPOINT. Some of our instrument lesson payments are to be made direct to the tutor.
PLEASE NOTE WE CAN NOT ACCEPT ANY CASH/CHEQUE PAYMENT DIRECTLY THROUGH SCHOOL. Please contact our finance office if you are experiencing difficulties in making payment.
Text Messages For Absence
Students are expected to attend lessons punctually and lessons missed through illness or absences are normally forfeited.If a student misses a lesson an email will be sent home to inform the parents/guardians of the pupil. Pupils should report to the Creative Arts Office to explain any absences.
