Woodbridge School’s Nathaniel, currently in Year 13, has been awarded a choral scholarship at Queens’ College, Cambridge – one of only a handful students this year to have done so.
Nathaniel, from Kesgrave, will be starting at Queens’ College in September 2021, to read Biological Natural Sciences and will be joining the world-renowned Chapel Choir on a choral scholarship.
Nathaniel has been having singing lessons at Woodbridge School since Year 7 and says of his achievement: “Woodbridge School is what really started my singing journey, as I had never had proper lessons before coming here. Much of the credit must go to Miss Weston, my school singing teacher, for all the hard work that she puts in.
Emma Kent, director of music at Woodbridge School, says: “We are so proud and excited for Nathaniel. He is a credit to himself, his parents, Miss Weston – his singing teacher, and the music department. I know that he will relish this brilliant opportunity and wish him a heartfelt well done.
“This is only the second time in my career that someone has achieved a choral scholarship to Cambridge – many have tried, but only a handful are chosen.”
