Grooveschool is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation Registered Charity No. 1183789

The objects of the CIO are —

  1. (a)  to advance the education of the public in subjects relating to music and arts technology;

  2. (b)  to promote social inclusion for the public benefit by preventing people from becoming socially excluded, relieving the needs of those people who are socially excluded, and assisting them to integrate into society.

Grooveschool has achieved Standard 1 against Project Oracle Standards of Evidence.

We know what we want to achieve.

Grooveschool has undergone a process of planning and reflection to create • a theory of change that describes the logic underpinning the project and an evaluation plan that is meaningful and proportionate to measure key outcomes and mechanisms of change.

We provide training in DJ skills and music production that may lead to qualifications (including Arts Awards, AQA and RSL accreditation)

Participants engage in hands-on learning using turntables and music technology, guided by experienced tutors.

Tutors are selected on the basis of experience and expertise and are required to hold an up to date enhanced DBS

The organisation aims to benefit people from low income families, NEET (“not in education, employment or training”), SEN/D (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities), those with multiple disabilities, those in need as a result of unemployment, people in care and in hospices, also the elderly, especially Alzheimer sufferers.

“I just wanted to drop a line to say what a difference attending Groove School has made for ******* and his communication at school. Every Tuesday he tells me, unprompted, about how his session went the night before and last week he presented an assembly to the whole Sixth Form about DJing and played them a pre-recorded description of what he does on Tuesday's. In fact last week I think we heard the most speaking from him ever!”

“Thanks for everything you have been doing for ******. He is right now DJing for his class for the second time this month and his mum came to parents evening and spoke about the "transformation" she has seen in him from someone who is afraid to leave the house alone to someone who is travelling alone and determined to attend Groove School. Have a Great Summer”
