We are confident that Sparkyard provides excellent value for money, and prices are set to ensure that the cost each school pays per pupil is broadly similar across all schools: normally around £1 per pupil per year! But we know that budgets are always tight, and you may be looking for ways to save.
At Out of the Ark, we believe strongly that part of our role in the Music Education ecosystem is to help schools engage with their local Hub provision, who are available to provide specialist teaching and powerful musical opportunities to every school. As such, we have a policy that the best price a school can ever get for Sparkyard will always be through their local Music Hub or Music Service.
If your Music Hub or Service is a partner of ours already, they will be able to give you a discount code that will save you at least 30% on the cost of a new Sparkyard subscription, or a renewal. Please get in touch with your local Hub to find out if they can offer you this discount. If you don't know who your local Hub or Service is you can find out here: https://www.musicmark.org.uk/getplaying/
If your local Hub or Service is not a partner of ours yet, why not get in touch with them, and suggest that they become one? You can tell them that organisations that agree to partner with us get a discount code to share with all of their primary schools, which gives them 30% discount. The service also receives free access to the platform for members of their team, and free online training sessions to help school see what’s being offered. We don't ask the organisation to pay for the partnership - we just ask them to work with us and explore what we can do to support them and the schools they serve. They can contact Pete@outoftheark.com to set up a call and find out how we can work together.
