The Chorister School is a pre-preparatory and preparatory day and boarding school for boys and girls aged 4-13 in Durham, England. It is located at 9 The College, a Grade I listed building adjacent to Durham Cathedral. The majority of the pupils at the school attend on a "day" basis, with about 30 boarders of both sexes making up the balance. Boys who are Choristers all board. Pupils are taught in small classes in a collection of historic buildings all of which form part of the College, or Cathedral Close.
