Dean Close Preparatory School, Cheltenham and Tewkesbury Abbey are delighted to announce a historic change to their chorister programme. From September 2021, chorister places in Tewkesbury Abbey Schola Cantorum will, for the first time, be open to both young girls as well as boys.

This exciting step presents an equal opportunity for young boys and girls of all ages and backgrounds to have access to the outstanding musical training that being a chorister brings, alongside a first-class education at Dean Close Preparatory School. This year, opportunities are open for girls and boys to begin as choristers in Tewkesbury Abbey Schola Cantorum in Years 4, 5 and 6 in September 2021. In a significant first for both Tewkesbury Abbey and Dean Close Preparatory School, the change will mean that boys and girls will have the opportunity to sing alongside one another on a daily basis.
