“Every day of the last two years of my course I considered quitting. I’d have
low points thinking, ‘Why am I doing this? I’m not happy’. There was a lack
of support from the conservatoire.

“I can deal with bullies, but it was a shame there wasn’t much support for
what I was doing. I wanted to represent [the college] and be proud to do so.
But I got a first and was very proud of that.”

A Royal College of Music spokesman said: “We are sorry Laura feels she wasn’t
supported. We are very proud of Laura, and regularly celebrated her many
achievements in our magazine.

“We have an exceedingly firm policy that bullying will not be tolerated. Laura
didn’t bring this issue to our attention.”

Ms Wright is due to sing God Save The Queen at the England v Wales match at
Twickenham on March 9.

The rugby-playing soprano, who sang the National Anthem ahead of England’s Six
Nations clash with Ireland at Twickenham has revealed that she has been on
the receiving end of mocking renditions of the anthem from rival players
during matches for her club Rosslyn Park.
