Boys join the pre-prep school in the September after they reach four years of age. There are thirty places available.

Registered boys will be invited for assessment, and parents to meet the Head of Pre-Prep and Director of Admissions.

We aim for this to be both friendly and personal for the boys. We are looking for potential rather than attainment and, most importantly, that boys will thrive and be happy at WCCS.

Parents will be offered either a firm or a waiting list place and feedback will be available on all boys, irrespective of outcome.

Parents accepting a firm offer will be asked for a deposit of £2,000, refundable on their son’s departure from the School.

Siblings
The School gives priority to boys who have siblings at WCCS, subject to satisfactory assessment.

8+ (YEAR 4) CHORISTER ADMISSION TO WCCS
Boys normally join in Year 4, aged 8 years, and are known as ‘probs’, or probationers, for their first year.
Admission follows informal and formal voice trials with the Master of Music at Westminster Cathedral and academic and pastoral assessments. The School offers about six probationer places each year, so entry highly is competitive.

Due to the particular nature of the duties attached to Choristership at Westminster Cathedral, and in accordance with the School's designated status, all Probationers and Choristers must be baptised and practising Roman Catholics.

If your son is a Catholic, lively, cheerful, robust and musical boy, interested in exploring life as a chorister at Westminster Cathedral, why not bring him along? Contact Miss Lucy Auger to find out more.
