The Choir Schools' Association is a U.K. organisation that provides support to choir schools and choristers, and promotes singing, in particular of music for Christian worship in the cathedral tradition. It represents representing 44 choir schools attached to cathedrals, churches and college chapels.[1]

The association was founded in 1918,[2] although it represents groups centuries older than this. Today it provides bursaries and scholarships to 120 children to pursue training as choristers, primarily through the Chorister Fund established in 1985. It also supports schools directly. Katharine, Duchess of Kent is a patron of the association.[3]
