Education has always been a feature of life in and around this ancient building. In monastic times the monks provided a school for young boys in the cloister, as well as being a place of theological learning for the monks. Later, following the Dissolution of the monastery, The Kings school was established and that long relationship continues today as they provide the choristers for the choir, and their King's and Queen's scholars take their place in the ‘Cathedral College'.
Education through various means reaches out to all ages and groups - those who regularly are members of the cathedral community in study groups; the wider Diocese, the City and County in conferences and seminars; and those in school, college and University who visit to enhance their study in particular curricular areas.
