A new Deputy Head Boy and Head Girl have been appointed at Rydal Penrhos ahead of the next academic year.
The school revealed that Matthew Trumper and Olivia Rogerson have been given the responsibility for 2017/18, with Headmaster Simon Smith officially making the announcement during the recent Speech Day festivities.
They will both work with prefects’ and newly appointed Head Boy Alex Benfield and Head Girl Olivia Williams in the coming months.
Upper Sixth pupil Matthew, aged 16, is an extremely gifted pupil academically, as was demonstrated by his phenomenal GCSE results last summer, where he achieved no fewer than nine A*’s and one A in what was a sensational reward for his hard work.
The talented footballer was also at the forefront of Rydal Penrhos’ recent Mock General Election as Leader of the Scottish National Party, and managed to acquire 20 votes in the face of stern competition.
Deputy Head Girl Olivia is in her sixth year at the school, having joined as a Year 8 pupil, and has established herself as a significant role model to younger pupils thanks to her approachability and willingness to aid others.
She was also a key component in the success of the Mock General Election, where the 17-year-old took on the role of Theresa May to lead the Conservative party to a second placed finish.
Deputy Head Tim Cashell, said: “Congratulations to Olivia and Matthew on their respective appointments, which reflect the impact they have had on various areas of life at Rydal Penrhos during their time here.”
