We are so thankful to all of our supporters, who enable us to continue our important work at Chetham’s.

Chetham’s School of Music is the largest of nine specialist Music and Dance Schools (MDS) in the UK, and the only one of its kind in the North of England.

For fifty years, we have been a beacon of excellence. Each year we welcome over 300 students from across the UK and the world, and we are incredibly proud that the only criteria for entry to the School is musical potential and never the ability to pay. Almost 90% of our students receive financial support, with nearly 20% paying no fees at all.

Our Creative Engagement programme engages with thousands of people in Manchester and beyond every year, so that even more people can experience the profound benefits of listening and playing music. In 2017, we opened the award-winning Stoller Hall, which welcomes world-class musicians to perform in Manchester.

We believe music and education have the power to bring people together. We’d love you to join us on our journey.
