Westminster Abbey Choir School exists solely to educate and care for the 30 or so boys who sing as choristers in the Abbey Choir. The purpose-built school, set in the heart of the Abbey precincts, offers a complete preparatory school boarding education but tailored precisely to the needs of choristers. Academic lessons, musical tuition, sports, activities and games are carefully arranged around the boys’ various singing commitments to offer a unique educational experience.
