The Chorister School

Prep Co-Education School, Durham

The Chorister School has been established at Durham Cathedral for over 600 years.


Set in the magnificence of The College, it provides the security and intimacy of a school small enough for every child and family to be known and cared about. It is served by a committed, skilled and qualified professional staff and strives to be a centre of excellence across the curriculum, with particular specialities in Music and Maths.


As an independent prep school we are in a position to ensure that your child is prepared for entry to any one of a huge range of Senior Schools. Recently our pupils have transferred with Scholarships to a range of boarding schools, including Harrow, Eton, King’s Ely, St Peter’s York, Fettes, Oundle, and Uppingham. Our aim is to prepare the groundwork to ensure that when your child moves to senior school they are equipped not only with the academic skills required, but also the confidence, independence and curiosity that will put them one step ahead for the rest of their education.
