Dating back over 800 years, St Paul's Cathedral School is a co-educational school for children aged 4-13 and a boarding school for boy choristers from 7-13 years.
St Paul's Cathedral School is a Christian, co-educational community which holds to the values of love, justice, tolerance, respect, honesty, service and trust in its life and practice, to promote positive relationships throughout the school and its wider community and where the safety, welfare and emotional well-being of each child is of the utmost importance.

Giving the boys and girls in our care firm foundations for the future and preparing them for the next stage in their education in a safe and comfortable environment where ideas can be explored and challenged is central to our aims and principles. There is real breadth to the educational experience here. We are situated on a relatively small site, but our location means that we can make the most of what London has to offer: trips to museums and galleries and other places where children can learn about the world from different perspectives are a regular occurrence, and of course we have permanent access to one of the world’s most iconic buildings, the Cathedral. We have just had an £8m refurbishment of the classrooms and outdoor spaces. The most important thing we aspire to do as a school is instill a love of learning, from science to the arts and sport, about ourselves and our place in the world and, ultimately what we can all do to make a positive difference, together.

The boys and girls go on to a wide variety of senior schools at 11 and 13 : co-educational; single sex; boarding and day. And while we think of exams as an outcome, not a goal, we have a good record of scholarships, particularly music scholarships, to many of the top schools in London and beyond.

We pride ourselves on the high caliber of pastoral care given to all our pupils and resident staff take on the particular role of looking after our world-class choristers who board in a brand new separate building on the school's site.
