Although a great deal is expected of the Choral Scholars, much emphasis is on fun and team-work. In addition to their Minster duties, the Choral Scholars regularly go on tour, sing in cathedrals and concert venues and make recordings.

Applicants are welcome to contact the Director of Music, Ronny Krippner, either via email: or via phone: 07887 753416 to arrange an informal chat. Applications must be made via Whitgift School:
