About Sir John Manduell
After Haileybury, John Manduell went up to Jesus College Cambridge to study languages, an experience he described as a "forfeited opportunity". After having his request to transfer to music turned down, John Manduell withdrew from Cambridge and, in what followed, showed that success is what you make it.
He won a three-year scholarship to the Royal Academy of Music, eventually becoming director of the newly-formed music department at Lancaster University in 1968 and then founding principal of the Royal Northern College of Music, which was to become one of the world's leading conservatoires. In later life he was a member of the Arts Council of Great Britain, chairman of Northern Ballet and in 1989 joined the board of the Royal Opera House. Between 1994 and 1995 he was also President of the Haileybury Society.
