Financial Assistance


As a Registered Charity, we are determined that financial hardship should not prevent a child from receiving instrumental tuition with us.

Parents may apply for financial assistance via our Trust Fund, COVID-19 Emergency Fund or one of our Specialist Funds.

If your child is in receipt of Free School Meals or you are in receipt of Universal Credit or Working Tax Credit you are eligible to receive a 50% reduction of fees subject to application to our Trust Fund.

Our Funds

1. MMF Trust Fund – Our Trust Fund supports pupils in receipt of Free School Meals or whose parent(s)/guardian(s) are entitled to Universal Credit or Working Tax Credit by subsidising 50% of the cost of lessons. Application form below. (Trust Fund Terms and Conditions).

2. MMF COVID Emergency Fund – This fund helps to enable access to learning for pupils whose families have been affected by the impact of the pandemic. Applications for 2020-2021 are now closed.

3. Peter’s Fund (Peter Woodings Bursary Fund) – This fund was set up in memory of our dear colleague and aims to support young guitarists.  Find Out More and Download the Application Form.

We also oversee the management and allocation of two additional funds:

– The Greenwood Bursary Fund

(Proof of entitlement must be within the current financial year and bank statements are not acceptable). If you prefer, you can post a FULL copy of your Working Tax Credit letter with payment proof to MMF office, Harris Academy Morden, Lilleshall Road, Morden SM4 6DU.
