“Studying at Old Palace School was great fun, I think the teachers are what makes it so special. Old Palace definitely inspired my passion for music, not only the enjoyment of playing an instrument, but also the confidence to go out there and perform.

John Whitgift Foundation bursary gave me access to an incredible education that I never would have otherwise had access to. It’s an opportunity that’s once in a lifetime and will shape your life forever.”
