The Diocese of Leeds Schools Singing Programme is recognised as the UK’s leading Catholic singing provision, reaching around 4,500 children across the Diocese every week. Music, and singing in particular, enhances learning; improving mental and physical well-being, building cohesion and, as shown by recent academic studies, contributing to learning development in areas across the curriculum. Our sessions follow a rich and broad curriculum, offering the best in sacred and secular songs, all of which are carefully chosen to develop the children’s vocal and musical development and feed into school collective worship and Masses. Lessons include exciting warm-ups and games and are led by our educationally-expert Choral Directors.  To provide further opportunity, the programme runs a superb range of after-school choirs, including the choirs of Leeds Cathedral, Bradford Catholic Youth Choir, Huddersfield Boys’ and Girls’ Choirs, Bishop Konstant Youth Choirs, St Maximillian Kolbe Children’s Choir and Calderdale Catholic Schools Choir. 

The Organists’ Training Programme was set up in May 2016, in partnership with the Royal College of Organists and through a generous grant from The Liz and Terry Bramall Foundation. The Programme now numbers some sixty young students across the Diocese, with teaching centres in Bradford, Harrogate, Huddersfield, Keighley, Leeds and Wakefield. Former students have gone on to study Music at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance and the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge.
