TWO OXFORD SCHOLARSHIPS WON BY OLD BOY KIERAN LAMB

This week we received the wonderful news that Kieran Lamb, who left King’s Rochester in 2015, has been awarded not one, but two scholarships for Magdalen College, Oxford. Kieran’s outstanding musical abilities earned him both the Music Scholarship and the Demy Scholarship.

Involved with Music at King’s Rochester since his very first week as a Music Scholar, Kieran’s illustrious music career saw him play as part of the Orchestra, Jazz Band, Wind Band, Choir and Chamber Choir.

Kieran took violin and percussion at King’s as well as piano and drums with, his studies for A level running alongside his studies at the Junior Department of the Royal College of Music. Kieran wished to attend Magdalen College, Oxford and his determination and skill earned him an A* in Music and the university destination he dreamed of.

With performances at school that ranged from the House Music Competition in School Hall to playing at the Royal Albert Hall for Primary Proms, Kieran has also had the honour to play for the Royal Family, twice! Once at Westminster Abbey as part of the Commonwealth Festival Orchestra and then at the Turner Contemporary for the Royal Visit.

Ending his time at King’s Rochester with an impressive performance of Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto, we know Kieran will continue to excel and look forward to hearing about all his future achievements.
