An Experience of a Lifetime
The Ingenium Academy prides itself on not only being an outstanding music school with top class tuition, but also a fun and culturally diverse experience for young people from all over the world. Every student at The Ingenium Academy goes home having developed their musical technique, as well as having advanced personally and socially through gaining a rich cultural understanding.
In addition to the enriching musical curriculum, students also enjoy discovering Britain in the glorious city of Winchester and day trips including to the South coast and nearby London. In the capital, students explore famous sights such as the Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace and The Tower of London as well as enjoying West End theatre and top classical concerts. Back on campus, there are an array of evening activities such as team games, discos, movie nights, talent shows, quiz nights and barbeques.
A summer at The Ingenium Academy will not only enhance each student's musical talent, but will develop their confidence, character and, as appropriate, English Language and social skills. We provide a rare and unique opportunity for students to meet, mix and share the joy and excitement that they receive from music making with other talented, young musicians from all over the world.
The Ingenium Academy is located within the stunning town of Winchester, just one hour South West of London. Students stay and rehearse in the beautiful campus of Winchester College. Founded in the fourteenth century, this is one of the UK's top private boarding schools and has excellent facilities.
Winchester is England's ancient capital and a treasure trove of English heritage, tradition and culture. The town centre is small yet packed with historic buildings and monuments, a magnificent cathedral and plenty of shops and cafes - providing a great environment for our students to explore.
Safety and Happiness
Our first priority is to ensure that all of our students are safe and happy within their learning environment. As well as our highly qualified specialist music staff, we also have a pastoral team whose main concern is the safety and well-being of our students.
Our pastoral team is made up of responsible young adults and teachers who are all passionate about music and have extensive experience in working with and caring for young people. They live on campus to supervise and guide the students at all times.
The pastoral team's top priority is the safety, welfare and happiness of each student.
"It was beyond expectations. Nicole really loved it, the music, the trips, and she also made wonderful friends. Nicole loved this residency so much she would like to repeat it again next year."
