Classic FM are sponsoring the award for the Best Classical Music Education Initiative in Music Teacher magazine's annual Awards for Excellence. This award will honour an education project which has used classical music in an innovative way, shown musical excellence and had a positive impact on a significant number of participants.
Highbury Grove School. Highbury Grove School, a once-failing secondary school in north London where 70% of students are eligible for free school meals, hit the headlines earlier this year when it was announced that all 210 Year 7 pupils had been given a violin, viola or cello. Many Highbury Grove pupils start the day at 7.50am with an orchestral rehearsal and are able to opt into a programme which lets them spend Fridays entirely on music. It is expected that all 600 children in Years 7, 8 and 9 will be learning an instrument by 2014.
