Fees & Funding

It is a fundamental principle of St Mary’s Music School that our world-class music training should be offered to gifted children regardless of their financial status or background.  The majority of our pupils and choristers receive financial assistance appropriate to their means.  We are fortunate to be supported by the Scottish Government, the Cathedral, trusts and donors.

All eligible instrumental pupils at St Mary’s Music School are supported by the generous provisions (up to 100% of fees) of the Aided Places scheme for the cost of tuition and boarding fees.

Our choristers are supported either by a Cathedral Scholarship or one of a limited number of Aided Places.
