Select Language


Chetham's has no academic entrance requirement; we select purely on musical ability and potential. Nevertheless, our students achieve good exam results, and aptitude tests suggest that significant value is added to our students.

Furthermore, some exams are taken early, particularly Music, but also, depending on the ability of the cohort and individual students, Maths and Languages. This explains why the numbers taking these subjects and the grade distribution can vary from year to year.

2015 results may be subject to slight changes.
