From education to employment

Barton Peveril’s Marvellous Musicians

Barton Peveril Sixth Form College Music students are celebrating offers to study Music at the most prestigious conservatoires and universities in the country. The students have received offers from leading institutions around the country, from the University of Oxford to Royal Welsh College of Music.

The Toynbee School had three former pupils amongst those offered places to study Music; Annie Duxbury was offered a place to study at Trinity College of Music, Soren Chakrabarti received an offer to study at the Royal Welsh College of Music, and Della Darvill earned an offer to study at University of Oxford‘s Christ Church College.

Speaking on her offer, Della Darvill said:

“Getting the chance to read music at Oxford is such an amazing opportunity, one that I know would not be possible without the constant support of Barton.”

Wyvern College also had multiple former pupils receive offers, this year. Toby Saunders and Elijah Jeffery were both offered places at Royal Northern College of Music, with Elijah Jeffery also being offered a place at Royal Welsh College of Music.

Speaking on receiving two offers, Elijah Jeffery said:

“Being offered places at two conservatoires was really exciting. It made me feel really great about my abilities and potential, especially in terms of future career plans. However, I then of course had to make a decision as to which of the conservatoires I wanted to attend, which was really tricky.”

In addition, students who attended a number of other local schools also received offers. Tom Hughes, formerly of Crestwood Community School, was offered a place at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire. Josh Doyle and Lomax Pavey, formerly of Thornden School and Kings’ School Fair Oak respectively, both received offers from the Royal Northern College of Music. Former The Mountbatten School pupil Jared Meade received an offer to study at Trinity College of Music.

Barton Peveril’s Subject Leader for Music, Gary Williams, praised these students: “We are delighted with the offers our students continue to receive from the UK’s top universities and conservatoires. This will give them the best possible opportunity to progress on to a career in the music industry.”
