Here are ten reasons why you should consider this life-changing opportunity for your child:

– Choristers are educated at St Peter’s School, one of the country’s leading independent schools and The Sunday Times North Independent School of the Year 2019.

– Choristers develop a lifelong love of music and become proficient musicians.

– Choristers can discover their talents in music, academics, culture and sports thanks to the extensive co-curricular programme at St Peter’s.

– Choristers sing in one of the world’s most magnificent cathedrals each day.

– The choristers are part of a 1,000-year-old tradition of church music. The shared heritage between St Peter’s and York Minster can be traced back to 627AD!

– Choristers make friends for life as a result of their shared experiences.

– Choristers are confident, resilient, organised, focused and excellent team players.

– Being a chorister can transform a child’s prospects in life beyond school.

– Fees are subsidised by the Dean and Chapter of York Minster, with a minimum subsidy of 60%.

– “I love being a chorister. I love the music and the services, and I feel calm when I sing” (Lola, current chorister)
