Music and Choral Scholarships

Hampton has a long-standing tradition of musical excellence and our superb Performing Arts centre, The Hammond Theatre, provides a magnificent venue for an exciting and diverse programme of concerts. Opportunities to perform are numerous and standards achieved are consistently impressive at all levels. We believe passionately in fostering a love of music and our purpose in offering Music and Choral Scholarships is to encourage and inspire musical boys to develop and fulfil their talent.

Award holders are expected to make a full contribution to the School’s musical activities.

 

Choral Scholarship

A Choral Scholarship are available to boys joining the First Year and are awarded in conjunction with the Chapel Royal at Hampton Court Palace. Choral Scholars are therefore required to be, or to become, choristers of the Chapel Royal. They are also expected to take a leading part in the School Chamber Choir and play in an orchestra, ensemble or band if they are competent to do so.

 

Applications will be open at the beginning of the Autumn Term. They should be supported by the candidate’s current Headteacher and a link to the Headteacher’s Report Form will be available on submission of the online application form.

Music Scholarship 

Instrumental Music Scholarships are awarded to boys entering the First Year and the Third Year and scholars are expected to make a major contribution to the School’s musical life. Candidates interested in applying for a musical scholarship are encouraged to book an appointment for a pre-audition with the Director of Music.

Applications will be open at the beginning of the Autumn Term. They should be supported by the candidate’s current Headteacher and a link to the Headteacher’s Report Form will be available on submission of the online application form.
