Established in 2022 with the generous support of the Hamish Ogston Foundation, the Southwark Singing Programme (SSP) is a Diocesan music education programme which works in partnership with schools and parishes to develop musical provision and sacred singing across the diocese.

Our choral directors run whole-class singing sessions in primary and secondary schools on a weekly basis, and these feed into local after-school choirs which serve parish and school liturgies. The SSP is part of the National Schools Singing Programme and is in its initial pilot stage, working in schools close to the Cathedral at the request of the Archbishop.
