The Purcell School

Day Full Boarding Hertfordshire

The Purcell School is a boarding and day school for young musicians, and Britain's oldest specialist music school. Based in Bushey, near Watford and close to London, the Purcell School offers a rounded education with music at its heart. The Purcell School is funded largely by the Government's Music and Dance Scheme which, along with our own scholarship funds, ensures all pupils join the School on the strength of their musical potential irrespective of their parents' ability to pay.

The Purcell School has a total of 179 pupils, with 78 pupils in the Sixth Form.
