Private Independent Day School for Boys 3 - 13 & Girls 3 - 7, Flexi-Boarding for Boys 8 - 13


Music lies at the core of our School and plays a key role in its life. It belongs to its oldest traditions, stretching back to the foundation of Christ Church in 1546.

In 2017, CCCS received the Oxfordshire Community Hub Music Service Award in recognition of its Cathedral Choristers' outreach work over the past decade.

Singing is central to our ethos and we wish to share this passion. It is also why our School chose to support the Sing Up Outreach Programme, offering volunteer work with primary school children in partnership with the Oxfordshire County Music Service.

Our Cathedral Choristers and the School's Director of Music, Sophie Biddell, regularly visit participating primary schools to encourage children to sing and embed singing in their daily lives. All schools that take part in the programme then participate in a celebratory end of term concert held in Christ Church Cathedral.
