Leavers’ Destinations

Every year, Chetham’s students progress to leading conservatoires and universities across the world, with several students each year accepting places at Oxford and Cambridge universities.  Chetham’s is an ideal starting point for young people planning careers in music, but its students also develop an independence, work ethic and academic curiosity which has led to futures in law, medicine, politics, engineering, languages and science.
