Wells Cathedral School prides itself on the quality of its instrumental teaching. As a Specialist Music School funded by the Duke of Edinburgh through the Music and Dance Scheme, its Specialist Musicians demand tuition to the highest level from world-class teachers.

It is possible for this excellence to be shared in a highly meaningful way. Wells Music College offers opportunities for anyone outside the school to apply for one to one instrumental lessons with our teachers. The full range of instrumental disciplines can be covered and often it is possible to extend and enrich the experience through access to some of the excellent ensembles in the school.

Cedars Hall

Cedars Hall is our new music performance space at Wells Cathedral School.

The specifications for the building are of the highest standard, including first-rate acoustics and sound insulation and an overall design optimized to enhance teaching and learning for generations to come.

Clearly, it will be of immediate benefit to those who can occupy its space, whether they are part of the school community or members of the public.

  • It will be available for use by local, regional, national and international groups. Even in Wells, it is the most significant building development in decades.
  • It will play a major role in the cultural life in the UK. Hopefully, many visitors will attend a vibrant programme of events throughout the year.
  • It will enable us to be better at educating musicians which include sharing what we have with the widest possible community.


Wells Cathedral School is offering a scholarship opportunity for gifted and talented students to study at their school. Read HERE for more information.
