Record for music students

Music students at Peter Symonds College, Winchester, are celebrating winning an impressive nine places at prestigious conservatoires around the UK.


Music students from Peter Symonds have been offered places at a number of leading conservatoires including the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, the Birmingham Conservatoire, the Royal College of Music and the Royal Academy of Music. Four students have been awarded their places on full scholarships.


Student Freya Mackenzie commented: “I feel very honoured to have received an offer from Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. As I play the violin, getting offers and opportunities is very competitive as so many people play. I feel a mixture of relief and pride that all my years of hard work have paid off, as well as extremely excited to start off my professional career in September!”


Rachel Platt, Head of Music, said: “We are incredibly proud of our students successes. Competition for conservatoire places is extremely fierce and this achievement reflects our students abilities and their hard work. The talent, commitment and dedication that they have demonstrated will stand them in great stead for their next chapter.”
