Our Chapel Choir is perhaps unique amongst independent day schools, with choristers performing what is essentially a cathedral repertoire, offering an enriching and uplifting experience in which pupils from Year 5 in Prep, through to Sixth Form, work together as musical equals.
This spread across the Year groups creates a tight-knit ‘family’ reflective of the special community at the School as a whole.
The Choir sings in the School Chapel during weekly Chapel services and at Sunday Evensong.
Outside School, the Choir sings Evensong at local cathedrals, and will undertake summer ‘cathedral weeks’ where the choristers sing the daily offices in a cathedral or Minster. These trips alternate with foreign music tours which involve both instrumentalists and singers performing at a wide range of venues, with recent destinations including Italy, Spain and the Czech Republic.
