Chorister Trust

The St Paul's Cathedral Chorister Trust was established in 1984 to provide resources for the education and musical training of our Choristers, regardless of the financial position of their families. Grants made by the Trust have given many boys the unique experience of being a member of the choir of St Paul’s. 

The Chapter of St Paul's currently provide very generous scholarships which cover the full cost of the Choristers’ education and music tuition. The running cost is around £450K, Chapter needs to reduce this burden and looks to the Chorister Trust to assist in this task.

Another element of high cost is the boarding fees of Choristers at the Cathedral School. At present the Trustees award grants towards this element to approximately 40% of the Choristers. We are very grateful to have recently received a charitable gift from the Patron's Fund, and are honoured to have HM The Queen as our Patron.

The charity’s funds are professionally managed. A board of trustees is appointed by Chapter and the Court of Aldermen of the City of London Corporation. Their collective experience encompasses finance, choral excellence, education and administration.
