Silvertown school handed £15,000 music grant

Oasis Academy Silvertown has received a grant of £15,000 to purchase musical equipment. They plan to buy electric guitars, violins and a loop pedal, as well as specialist staff to lead lessons. The grant came from Restore the Music UK, who offer grants to deprived schools. The school, which plans to move to its permanent home on North Woolwich Road in 2020, has welcomed the grant. They have faced considerable challenges to their music programme due to planning delays.
