A balance of singing and academic education 

The life of a chorister is split between time spent at the Cathedral and Song School and their academic education at St Mary's Music School. Staff from the Cathedral and school work closely together to ensure that every child is supported both academically and pastorally. 

As well as a superb singing training, the academic standards at St Mary's Music School are extremely high; with small class sizes and individual, focused attention, our pupils thrive.

Pupils follow the Scottish curriculum for their age group in a small combined class which allows dedicated focus and individual attention.
