Ardingly College Schola Cantorum

Ardingly College Schola Cantorum is the chamber choir of Ardingly College, a vocal ensemble that comprises some 14 to18 singers. It includes pupils from all years in the Senior School and explores a wide variety of vocal genres from the Renaissance through to a cappella arrangements of contemporary popular numbers. Schola Cantorum consists of the strongest and most vocally mature singers in the College and, aside from their duties in the Chapel choir, they rehearse twice a week in preparation for regular concerts both at the College and locally, alongside visits to Oxbridge colleges and prestigious cathedrals for Evensong and other such services. Annually, there is a choir tour to European destinations and in recent years the choir have toured Vienna and Prague, whilst in 2019 they will visit Malta.

Starting life in 1858 as Saint Saviour’s College in Shoreham, Ardingly College is one of the original three schools of the Woodard Corporation, a group of schools originally known as the Society of Saint Nicolas, operating in the Anglo-Catholic tradition of the Church of England. Known as a school which places the greatest value on individuals, alumni include former members of parliament, actors, authors, sportsmen, and even an eminent cathedral organist.
