YEAR 13 leaver, Victoria Davis, is off to the University of Birmingham in September to study Music after achieving the A Level grades she needed this summer.

We had a quick catch up with Victoria before she starts her new adventure:

Victoria, in which year group did you join King’s Ely?

“I joined King’s in Nursery 1 in January 2005 when I was 2 years old.”

Which University/Institution are you going to and what will you be studying?

“I’m going to the University of Birmingham this September to study Music.”

What career path do you hope to pursue?

“I hope to become a professional orchestral musician in the future. Music has been a massive part of my life since I began flute lessons in Year 3, singing lessons in Year 4, piano in Year 5 and I became a Music Scholar in Year 6. I think I knew from a very young age that I wanted to pursue a musical career.”

How do you think King’s Ely has prepared you for University life?

“Being at King’s for the last 15 years has increased my confidence and self-belief and I am extremely grateful for all the support and encouragement shown to me by every one of my teachers. We are so fortunate to have such an outstanding Music Department at King’s and I have learnt so much about performing in an ensemble from being a member of Orchestra, Chapel Choir and Concert Band.”

What will you miss most about King’s Ely and what did you enjoy most during your time here?

“What I will miss most about King’s is the huge range of extra-curricular activities offered by the school. I have loved the performing arts all my life and I will greatly miss the many musical and dramatic opportunities that have been available to me throughout my time at King’s. Every show, performance and concert I have been lucky enough to take part in have all been to such a high standard and the professionalism and enthusiasm of our teachers is second to none.”
