A gifted Sixth Form pupil at Rydal Penrhos was handed a prestigious award for his efforts during the academic year.

Will Marston, an Upper Sixth pupil at the school, was awarded the Rosa Hovey Memorial Scholarship Prize from Rydal Penrhos’ annual Speech Day event earlier this year.

The award has been given to aid assistance with educational expense, and Will follows on from Lloyd Parry-Williams, who took home the accolade in 2016.

It has been a memorable final year at the school for the 18-year-old, who has thrived in his role as joint-deputy head boy alongside Jack Sissons.

He is an immensely gifted academic who is expected to achieve impressive A-level marks when results are released on Thursday, August 17.

Will also had the honour of travelling to Buckingham Palace where they received his Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award together with Jack and twin sister Katie.

The event was attended by HRH Prince Phillip in what is expected to be his final appearance at the Presentation before retiring from public duties.

Deputy head Tim Cashell, said: “Will has simply been a joy to have here at Rydal Penrhos, and he has been a model pupil both in-and-out of the classroom.

“He exemplifies everything we try to install in in each of our pupils, and he has served as a tremendous role model to those who aspire to follow in his footsteps in the coming years.

“There is no doubt that Will is going to go on to great things and on behalf of everyone here at Rydal Penrhos I would like to thank him for the huge contribution he has made to the school.”
