2015 saw the launch of the musical instrument hire program. The hire program allows students beginning to learn an instrument within the College tuition program to hire an instrument from the College for a small fee. The maximum period that an instrument can be hired for is one school year; students wishing to continue on with instrumental tuition after this period must supply their own instrument. Please note that the number and variety of instruments currently available for hire is very limited.
