If you’re considering applying to Chetham’s, help and advice is available along the way to ensure that you make a decision that is right for you and your child.
We welcome applications and hold auditions throughout the academic year, but we encourage you to apply early, ideally before Christmas for a place the following September, to give you time to prepare for a change of school.
We also offer Advice Auditions all year round for musicians who would like professional feedback on their playing and musical ability, but have not yet decided whether they plan to apply for a place at Chetham’s.
The timeline below gives you an idea of the process of becoming a Chetham’s student. You don’t need to go through all of these stages – the crucial ones are marked with a star – but they may help you to make your decision about joining the School.
