Another pupil that is thriving academically and from a co-curricular perspective, Isabel will be taking on numerous roles during the upcoming Dramatic Society production of Les Misérables.

There is not much that the Year 10 pupil does not excel at, and she has achieved a considerable amount since arriving at Rydal Penrhos in 2015.

This has included a wealth of academic success, with Isabel recently securing a Silver Award from a national Biology Challenge thanks to her sterling effort during the assessment.

Isabel also managed to gain an A* in her Welsh (Second Language) GCSE module two years ahead of schedule, and she was also part of the Rydal Penrhos team that secured a high finish at the King’s School Chester Physics Olympiad.

Her prowess on stage is another notable feature of her impressive overall talents, with Isabel’s an outstanding solo at December’s Christmas Concert drawing widespread praise from those in attendance.

She has also contributed heavily to previous Dramatic Society productions, most notably in last year’s RPS Showstoppers celebration of Musical Theatre.

Isabel’s sporting performances have also been the source of great encouragement, with the pupil qualifying for the Independent Association of Prep Schools’ National Championships in 2017 thanks to her superb effort in the long jump.

If that wasn’t enough, Isabel is also part of the school’s thriving Duke of Edinburgh programme and recently came through her Bronze assessments with flying colours.

Tickets for Les Misérables are now on sale and can be purchased from Sarah James in reception, by calling 01492 530155 or emailing info@rydalpenrhos.com.
