Apply to Chetham’s

We're so pleased you're considering applying...

Do you love music but also want to thrive academically? You’ve come to the right place.

We’re a friendly bunch here at Chetham’s and help and advice is available throughout the whole school application process so that you can be sure you’re making the right decision.

We welcome applications and hold auditions throughout the whole academic year – it’s a fairly informal and flexible process, so all the young people feel at ease.

We encourage you to apply early, ideally before Christmas, for a place the following September. This will give you plenty of time to prepare for a change of school, and to work on aspects of your playing between your first and second auditions (if needed).

Unsure whether to apply? We offer Advice Auditions all year round for those who would like professional feedback on their playing and musical ability before they apply.
