The Yehudi Menuhin School

Charity description

The Yehudi Menuhin School logo
The Yehudi Menuhin School nurtures exceptional musical talent through a world class education – realising students’ potential and shaping UK and international music culture.

About the School

The celebrated violinist Yehudi Menuhin founded his School in Surrey in 1963 to provide a place for musically-gifted children from around the world to develop their talents to the highest level within a nurturing and stimulating academic environment, regardless of their economic background. 

Today’s school provides an holistic education for 87 exceptional students aged from 8 to 19, with specialist tuition on the stringed instruments, piano and classical guitar. 

Through our Bursary Fund, the School aims to realise Yehudi Menuhin’s original vision of operating a truly needs-blind admission process, where pupils are admitted on the basis of talent alone, regardless of their social or economic background. 

Friends and partners who believe in our mission and share our vision for the future play a critical role in its fulfilment. Their fundraising supports our pursuit of excellence and ensures the School's continued impact in the world through music education.

From all our students, staff, governors and parents, thank you for your generosity.
