The school confirmed that Andy Thomas and Rhian Williams have been appointed to the role following a successful interview process, and they will add their expertise to an exciting new leadership structure at the senior site.

Mr Thomas will be working closely with joint-Deputy Head Phil Sutton on the school’s teaching and learning and boasts more than a decade of occupying leadership positions within education establishments.

He studied Mathematics at the University of Manchester, gaining both a BSc and PGCE, and has more than 20 years’ experience in a variety of schools.

The popular figure joined Rydal Penrhos as a Mathematics teacher in 2017 and has particular experience in the quality assurance of teaching.

Mrs Williams will focus primarily on Pupil Progress alongside joint-Deputy Head Gabriella Murphy, and the Anglesey resident was awarded a BSc in Mathematics from the University of Wales, Cardiff and a PGCE from Bangor University. 

She is currently Head of Mathematics at the School and has played a leading role in some exceptional examination results from the department in recent years.

Executive Principal John Waszek, said: “Our ability to make significant appointments from within the current staff, who between them have decades teaching experience, reflects the current academic and professional strength of teachers at the school.

“It is through the staff of the school that our pupils are kept safe in school, are encouraged and enabled to thrive. 

“Consequently, we attach the greatest importance to our recruitment of teaching and support staff who, individually and collectively, have the biggest impact on the pupils.”
