Why train with us?

An introduction to the Minster School

The Minster School is a Voluntary Aided Church of England School of around 1600 students, aged from 7-18. The school traces its ancestry over 1000 years. We are the Choir School for the Minster; there is a Junior Department for the younger choristers and talented musicians, where musical education is enhanced within the context of the full National Curriculum. Approximately 70% of students come from our catchment area, with 30% entering the school on foundation places. The school is situated in the rural town of Southwell, a pleasant self-contained Minster town of some 8,000 inhabitants. We moved into all-new state of the art accommodation in September 2007.

The quality of education on offer to our students is reflected in our most recent Ofsted and SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools) inspections, for both of which the school was graded as ‘Outstanding’. The Minster School is a National Support School and in March 2013 we were designated as a Teaching School.
