- Young people’s academic achievements e.g. projects incorporating Arts Award will be looked upon favourably.
- Young people’s well-being or soft-skills development
- Young people’s cultural development
- Increased access to arts and cultural provision. This could be through working with a specific group of young people usually excluded from provision.
- Develop staff confidence and ability at utilising arts within the school setting.
Evaluation- you must be committed to completing the evaluation form which demonstrates project outcomes.
What you can apply for:
Production costs e.g. materials, equipment costs

School transport costs
What you can’t apply for:
Projects which have already started or taken place
Events intended to raise funds for non‐arts causes
Requests to pay off loans or deficits
Please note- we only have a small amount of money each quarter available, and will therefore not be able to fund every application we receive. We will not be able to provide feedback to unsuccessful applications, due to limited resources. If you are unsuccessful, please do not let this deter you from applying again in the future.
If successful, an evaluation report on the project will be supplied to the Hornpipe Trustees, no later than one year from the date of the Grant and 3 months after project conclusion. The report should describe fully the application of the Grant, and the achievements resulting from the project. More information about this will be given upon receipt of a grant.
