Fees

What matters at Chetham’s is talent not background or ability to pay - around 90% of students receive up to full funding through the Department for Education (DfE). This is made possible by the Government's Music & Dance Scheme, designed to enable young, talented musicians and dancers to receive full time education and training at a specialist school irrespective of parents' financial means.

A PDF of the Fees can be downloaded here.

More information can be found on the Financial Assistance page and Frequently Asked Questions about Financial Matters can be found on this page.
