The College was founded in 1856 by Sir Frederick Arthur Gore Ouseley, Bart. It was to 'promise a course of training, and to form a model, for the daily choral services of the Church in these realms, and, for the furtherance of this object, to receive, educate and train boys in religious, secular and musical knowledge.'
The College closed in 1985, and is now run as the UK base of King's College Madrid.
