The Girls’ Choir was founded in 2009 and runs parallel to the Boys’ Choir and on an equal basis.

The Girls’ Choir is open to girls aged seven to sixteen (Years 3 to 11). Previous experience is not necessary – we’re pleased to hear about girls who sing in their school choirs, have music lessons, or have taken music exams, but they’re not essential. What we are looking for are:

  • A love of singing and music
  • The beginnings of a ‘musical ear’
  • A willingness to get involved and learn new things
  • Parental support for their choir membership

Choristerships are free of charge. Choristers develop valuable life skills and gain self-confidence while receiving a unique musical education. Choristers receive:

  • a unique and fun musical education
  • activities, trips, and concerts
  • new friendships
  • pocket-money pay
  • excellent vocal training with a professional singing teacher
  • RSCM Award and ABRSM Theory training
  • crucial life skills (such as confidence, teamwork, responsibility and leadership)
  • reinforced academic skills (such as literacy, numeracy and languages)

Girls’ commitments during term-time are:

Thursday5.30 to 7.00pm Singing rehearsal and tuition
7.00 to 7.30pm Music theory tuition
Every second Sunday9.15 to 11.15am Rehearsal and service (Eucharist)
