Parents are asked to contact the Director of Music, Mr Andrew Carwood, through the Music Department Administrator, Mrs Angela Palotai (tel: 0207 236 6883; email: email@example.com), to arrange an informal audition in the first instance. This will involve singing a song, and some aural tests. Other than knowing a song and bringing a copy of the music with them, no other preparation is required. If your son can play an instrument as well we would love to hear them!
If asked to progress to a formal audition, the candidate will be asked to undergo the same academic testing as day pupils. Formal voice trials are held throughout the year.
Please contact Clare Morgan at the school on 020 7248 5156 or firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
There are places for choristers at 7+, 8+ and sometimes 9+.
If your son is successful in gaining a choristership, he will start as a probationer and, if he makes satisfactory progress, will proceed to the full choir a year later.
A chorister’s tuition fee and music lessons are paid for by the Dean and Chapter of St Paul’s Cathedral. Parents are asked to pay the boarding fee, but assistance with this is available. Please contact the bursar, Mr Martin Kiddle (tel: 020 7248 5156; email email@example.com) for details.
Once a year we hold a Chorister Experience Afternoon, usually in October. Please do contact the school for more information.
