BECOME A CHORISTER!

WE’RE LOOKING FOR ROBUST, MUSICAL AND TALENTED BOYS
  • Is your son a fun-loving, robust, self-starting, musical and talented Roman Catholic boy?
  • Is he coming up to his seventh or eight birthday?
  • Are you a generous family, with a great sense of humour, a love of beautiful music, seeking extraordinary opportunities for your son(s)?
  • Are you prepared for the commitment to boarding chorister life, with the wonderful sense of teamwork, discipline and achievement it brings?
  • Then consider the life of a chorister at one of the world’s most famous Cathedral choirs

AN EDUCATION AT ONE OF LONDON’S TOP PREPARATORY SCHOOLS

Choristers at Westminster Cathedral Choir School receive a first-class academic education from eight to thirteen (Years 4 to 8), at one of London’s top boys’ preparatory schools, at a greatly reduced cost.

Financial assistance is available from the Choir Schools' Assocation, on a means-tested basis. For more information, please contact the Choir Schools' Association, here.

PROGRESSION TO BRITAIN’S LEADING PUBLIC SCHOOLS

Almost all our choristers go on to achieve major music scholarships at Britain’s leading public schools.
ADMISSIONS AT 8+
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 by the Head Master. The School offers about six probationer places each year, so entry is highly competitive. Please contact the Registrar, Miss Lucy Auger, in the first instance.

FEES
Fees, payable termly and in advance, for the academic year 2017/18 are: £3,249 (per term).
