Music is an integral part of life at St Paul's Cathedral School – and not just for choristers. As well as the cathedral choir there are 5 school choirs, orchestra and 8 chamber groups, meaning over 80% of all pupils are in a choir or instrument ensemble. On average, 30% of all leavers at 13+ gain music awards to their next schools.
St Paul's offers tuition in all orchestral instruments as well as electric guitar, acoustic guitar, drums and percussion, piano, singing and the organ. We have over 20 experienced visiting music staff, most of whom combine a professional performing career with teaching. There are a wealth of performance opportunities, with over 40 music events a year, including concerts, festivals and services and competitions.
