As part of a special series of summer features, we turn our attention to our Year 6 pupils as we reflect on their accomplishments and get the perspective of Prep School Head Alison Hind.
The latest instalment of Leavers’ Focus features Isabella Peevor:
Driven and determined with a fantastic attitude in everything she attempts, there is not much that Isabella has not accomplished during her final year as a Prep School pupil at Rydal Penrhos.
Her talent across a multitude of different areas really came to the fore to further enhance her standing within the Year 6 group and also providing inspiration to younger members of the Prep School community.
Back in the autumn, Isabella was appointed as a Pembroke house captain and Prefect; she is the Swimming vice-captain; the rounders captain, and has enjoyed sailing success; played on a multitude of sports teams and still finds time to practice for her music exams and present at musical showcase concerts on her flute.
Another enormously notable success for Isabella, and clearly a wonderful surprise for her mum, when it was announced, was her second place entry into the comic relief Red Nose Design Challenge, which will now be transformed into a 3D nose by designers and sold in Oxfam stores across the country.
In recognition of her astonishing contribution during her final year of Prep School life, Isabella received the Art Scholar award, the Rounders Prize and Prize for French, DT and Instrumental Music at Rydal Penrhos’ annual Speech Day event prior to the summer break.
Prep School Head Alison Hind, said: “Isabella joined us in Year 1 and she has grown considerably, in every sense of the word.
“She overtook me in height some time ago and has truly blossomed this year, maturing into a considerate and pleasant young lady.
“She has made super progress academically, and should be proud of her achievements. – it is like one of those moments where everything seems to come together and click into place simultaneously and I have no doubt that Isabella is ready for the new challenges that lie ahead, and she will tackle them with confidence and perseverance.”
