About this cause
The Minster Junior School, based in the heart of Southwell, is a state-funded school for musically gifted children. Any key stage two child can join, regardless of their location or financial background. The entry criteria is based on musical potential, which makes this junior school a rarity. Similar schools operate in a fee-paying environment and so musical opportunity is only for those who can afford it.
How this cause brings people in the community together
By encouraging the musical talent of the children in our community, we create musicians who will continue to bring joy as they develop. During the Covid-19 outbreak, the enduring memories that gave communities hope were the musicians who sang and played on balconies and on the street, raising the spirits of their neighbours. Please support us in developing the next generation of musicians.
