We want to ensure that no one turns down a place on Jazz Camp for Girls due to the cost.

We have a bursary fund that supports students and their families dependent on their situation.

Bursaries and scholarships support young people from underrepresented backgrounds (i.e. Black, Asian and ethnic minority students, disabled students and those from low-income households).


Applications for a bursary because your total taxable household income is under £50,000 can be made by entering your household income on the enrolment form. 


Bursary levels for 2022:

  • For families with a total household taxable income below £25,000, full bursary awarded where possible

  • For families with a total household taxable income between £25,000 - £50,000, partial bursaries awarded where possible

Who Is It For?

This camp is aimed at girls aged approximately 9-15 years old who have little or no experience improvising. Students at Grade 3 will get the most from the camp, but anyone from Grade 1 and above is welcome as classes will be banded within the camp based on ability.
