Chetham's School of Music

Chetham's School of Music is a unique school taking pupils from many different backgrounds, from all over the UK and abroad. With over 280 pupils, Chetham's is housed in and around a historic fifteenth-century college building and is at the forefront of music education in Britain and Europe. Pupils, who are admitted solely on the basis of musical audition, develop a specialist interest to the highest level, which may be in an orchestral instrument, guitar, keyboard, voice, electronic music, jazz or composition, and all sing in choirs. Since 1980, the government has provided grants for pupils at Chetham's. The school is open to all, irrespective of financial or social background and 80% of our pupils come from state schools.
