Nurturing the Next Generation of Musicians

The mission of The Purcell School is to provide exceptionally gifted young musicians (irrespective of background) with outstanding teaching within a supportive school environment and to equip them with the self-confidence, adaptability, maturity and perspective to sustain their professional development and personal fulfilment throughout their lives.

The principal aims of The Purcell School are:

  • To sustain a safe, happy and healthy environment in which all can flourish musically, academically and emotionally
  • To deliver outstanding musical and academic education
  • To provide a range of high-profile and developmental performance opportunities
  • To deliver personalised pastoral care and support so that the individual needs of each student are met
  • Maintain (as far as is practically possible) open access by admitting students solely on the ability, not according to financial means.
