Whitefield School have become one of only 8 schools in the UK who are involved with the ‘Music in Secondary Schools Trust’ (MISST). All Year 7 students will receive free, ongoing instrumental lessons for three years as part of the taught music curriculum, plus be supplied with free instruments and opportunities to perform in national music concerts and events at prestigious London concert venues. All this is funded by Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber. Being part of MISST reflects the school’s commitment to the Arts in a time when Music, Drama and Dance are disappearing from many school timetables.
"The Music in Secondary Schools Trust believe that young people’s lives can be transformed through classical music education. We offer free musical instruments, high quality teaching, and performance opportunities to over 3,700 students to improve their educational and social outcomes."
