Participants on the course can either choose to stay on site at Chetham’s, with full board and accommodation, or be non resident. NB It is possible for participants to come on the course for as few or as many days as they wish. Due to the enormous popularity of the course however, anyone planning  to arrive or leave outside of the standard course dates for each part will need to find accommodation outside of the school.There are many hotels in Manchester to suit all budgets, many within walking distance of the school.

Registration is at 13:30 and 16:00 on the following dates:

Saturday 8th August – Junior Academy

Friday 14th August  – CIPPS Part 1

Thursday 20th August – CIPPS Part 2

Participants will receive all details of teachers, lesson times and concerts on arrival.

A team of  residential staff will provide pastoral care throughout the course for all minors. All participants at the Summer School are most welcome to bring their families and friends along as observers (see special rates). Because the faculty and facilities at Chetham’s are so large, it is possible for the Summer School to accommodate a wide ability and age range.
