Welcome to The Purcell School
Royal Patron: HRH The Prince of Wales
The Purcell School is a boarding and day school for young musicians, and Britain's oldest specialist music school. Based in Bushey near Watford, and with easy access to London, The Purcell School provides a rounded education with music at its heart.
We offer outstanding young musicians the opportunity to make music every day with around 180 other talented players and singers, enabling them to make the most of their abilities. Our pupils regularly win scholarships to the best music colleges in the UK and abroad, and enjoy frequent success in competitions locally, nationally and internationally.
