Celebrated throughout the world as a centre of musical excellence, The Purcell School is the most vibrant, exciting and exhilarating place to work or study. We are a close-knit community dedicated to nurturing some of the world’s most talented young musicians and we recognize the unique privilege it is to work with these incredibly gifted students.
Our students are the liveliest, most committed and self-motivated young people you could hope to meet. Every day, the School’s corridors echo with the sound of extraordinary music as our students prepare for one of the 150 concerts we present every year, both here at School and in the most prestigious venues in London.
Sport plays an important part in the life of The Purcell School. As a school for young musicians we do not offer mainstream team sports but physical education and fitness for life are essential to the well-being of our young musicians. As a boarding school where students are often busy throughout the school day, we need to provide opportunities for them to be involved in physical exercise at times that are convenient to them, and in an environment which supports their musical ambitions.
