A host of Lower School pupils received exceptional marks from their London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art grading performances prior to the summer break.
Leading the accolades from a Year 7 perspective was William Rutherford, who managed to secure a Distinction from his Grade Two assessment as a result of his outstanding effort, and Art scholar Isabella Peevor achieved a High Merit at the same level of difficulty.
Academic and Music scholar Perry Williams, Harrison McKinnel and Ella Northcott also secured Distinctions from their Grade One examination to cap off a fine all-around effort from the group.
There was further cause for celebration in the form of the Year 8 contingent, with Freddie James, Christian Cheesley, Ruby Merrick, Eve Durrans and Emily Jones all recognised with Distinctions at Grade Two level.
Caitriona Searl came away from her Grade Two examination with a High Merit, and rounding off the successes were Llion Morris and Arran Sen, who scored Merits from their Grade Two exam performance.
Each candidate worked incredibly hard under the expert support and guidance of Speech and Drama teacher Christina Bloomfield in the lead-up to their respective gradings, and they will begin honing their skills further in the coming weeks in the hope of further accolades throughout the academic year.
Deputy Head Tim Cashell, said: “This was an extremely pleasing set of LAMDA results from our Lower School group, who continue to benefit from the wealth of opportunities afforded to them and each pupil living and learning at Rydal Penrhos.
“The programme continues to thrive under Mrs Bloomfield’s passionate leadership, and hopefully this is just the start of things to come for the youngest members of the Senior School community.”
