Choral Scholars


Robert Presley


On Robert Presley's death, a scholarship was set up at St John's in his name, as a living memorial.


Every year the Robert Presley Scholarships are awarded to our best-auditioning applicants.

St John’s Choral Scholarships offer a unique opportunity to develop a high standard of ensemble singing in a relaxed, laid-back environment.


We especially look for people who are passionate about a wide range of choral repertoire (both sacred and secular), excellent musicians, and supportive team workers.


Ideal candidates will be also confident sight-readers with experience of choral singing and a good sense of humour.

We welcome enquiries from students in Higher Education, recent graduates, young professionals.

Our Director of Music is always happy to discuss the nature and details of the scholarships.
