A Conservatoire target for 2013-14 was to develop actions to promote good relationships between groups of students with different sexual preferences and prevent homophobia. This action was developed in response to concerns raised by members of the Equality and Diversity Committee (E&DC), particularly in schools where students are admitted at age 16.
