Registered Charity No. 270751
The Choral Scholarship Fund is a registered charity which is independent of Tewkesbury Abbey and Dean Close School.
The Choral Scholarship Fund provides scholarships to choristers who sing in the Tewkesbury Abbey Schola Cantorum and who are educated at Dean Close Preparatory School.
To encourage boys and their parents to accept the commitment of time and discipline which is required to be a member of the Schola Cantorum, the Choral Scholarship Fund provides choristerships which are worth approximately one quarter of each term’s fees.
In 2013 an endowment grant of £20,000 was made by the Friends of Cathedral Music and a further grant of £20,000 by the Garfield Weston Foundation. The Choral Scholarship Fund is most grateful for this important support.
The Trustees are grateful to the Donors of the following Scholarships:
The Ouseley Trust
Friends of Cathedral Music
Old Decanian Society
Ernest Cook Trust
Michael Peterson Endowment
Miles Amherst Endownment
The Trustees also acknowledge the financial support given by The Tewkesbury Abbey Music Fund.
