Applications for the Easter Course are now closed.  Confirmation of places has been sent out by email to all applicants.


Application forms

Applications for the Easter Course are now closed.  

NB – you should receive an automatic response email when your form is submitted.  If you don’t receive the email, this could be for various reasons:

– it may possibly have been caught by your spam filter
– you may have entered your email address incorrectly: please do take care when entering it!
– if you are making two or more applications for the same Yorchestra, please note that some email clients (eg. Gmail) will treat these as part of the same email “thread” / “conversation”, and at first glance it may appear that you have only received one response email.

If you haven’t received a response email and would like to check whether your application has been received safely, please contact us and we will be happy to confirm the position for you.


Course fees

Yorchestra courses cost £50 per full day, or £45 if you qualify for the Early Bird discount.  Total course fees are therefore:

 Full course fee    Early Bird rate
Y3  £100 £90
Y4 £50 £45
YoYos £50 £45

If you are applying for bursary funding, you should send payment initially for the amount of the applicable course fee less the amount of the bursary applied for.  If your application for bursary funding is unsuccessful, or you are granted a lower bursary than the amount applied for, you will be notified of the balance due, which will need to be paid in order to confirm your child’s place.


How to pay

Payment for course fees should be made at the same time as you apply for a place.  You can pay either by direct bank transfer (BACS) or by cheque.  Where possible, please consider paying by BACS, since we incur bank charges for cashing cheques.

Yorchestra has a bursary fund to enable us to offer some financial assistance to those who would not otherwise be able to participate in the course. This fund is limited, and we therefore need to consider each application carefully. Most bursaries will be for a maximum of 50% of the course fee.

Some of our current bursary funding has been generously provided to us by The Feoffees of St Michael’s Spurriergate, a charitable trust which exists to benefit the inhabitants of the city of York. Because of this, bursaries from this source are only available to those resident within the former limits of the city, as shown on this map. If you are applying for a bursary funding and live inside the area shown on the map, please confirm this on your application, so that we can ensure that your request is considered by reference to this fund.

If you have any queries about bursaries and eligibility for financial help, please contact us at Any information given will be treated in the strictest confidence. Bursary applications are limited to three children from a single family address and are awarded at the sole discretion of Yorchestra.
