Affiliated Schools

Three local schools have a close association with the Cathedral – St Edmundsbury CEVA Primary School, King Edward VI Upper School and County Upper School.


These schools are an important part of the Cathedral’s community and the Chapter is represented on the governing bodies. The schools come to the Cathedral for educational visits, specials services, concerts and also play their part in the Cathedral’s routine services from time to time.


In addition we are pleased to have a particularly close relationship with the two Upper schools, who support the Cathedral in the provision of a placement for an Organ Scholar (at King Edward VI Upper) and a Choral Scholar (at County Upper). This gives young musicians the opportunity to work with pupils in each school to develop musical skills.
