SIPS Music & Arts Service works tirelessly to build an inclusive educational culture, where all children and young people are valued and recognised for their unique qualities, ideas, voices and perspectives.

At SIPS Music & Arts Service, we believe in continuing to have a social impact on young people’s lives in challenging circumstances.
