About Us


St Edmund’s School is proud to educate and care for the choristers of Canterbury Cathedral. They are a very special part of our school and benefit from all the same teaching and resources as our other pupils.

The opportunity to be a chorister is something truly unique, given the international profile and prestige of Canterbury Cathedral.

Choristership is a life-changing experience that creates a great sense of pride and personal fulfilment.  Some choristers go on to distinguished musical careers, and for all the leadership, team work and organisational skills they learn are extremely useful in their lives at the school, at university and beyond.

The Canterbury Cathedral Girls’ Choir was founded in 2014:  girls in Year 8 can audition, and a number of St Edmunds girls are currently in the choir.
