Being a chorister in the Choir of Westminster Abbey is a unique musical and educational experience. Between the ages of 8 and 13 choristers enjoy an outstanding education at our Choir School, coupled with specialist musical training and the wealth of performance opportunities which come with being a member of the Abbey’s world-famous choir.
Choristers gain valuable skills – musical, academic and social – that last a lifetime and provide an excellent foundation for the future, whatever they may go on to do.
As our school caters solely for the choristers (the only one in the country to do so), the timetable can be geared entirely to their needs, with academic classes, instrumental lessons and sports all carefully arranged around their singing commitments to achieve the optimum balance and leave plenty of time for games and activities.
School fees are very generously subsidised by the Dean and Chapter, and means-tested bursaries are also available.
Visit the school's website to discover more about choristership and how to apply.
I’ve worked here for over thirty years and have seen many of the major services - it’s strange to realise that you are in a small way part of history.
