A talented Sixth Form pupil at Rydal Penrhos has capped off a memorable time at the school with an exceptionally strong set of A-level results.
Matthew Trumper, a Year 13 pupil at the school, has achieved success in a multitude of different areas during the final year of his time at Rydal Penrhos, which began as a Year 7 pupil in 2011.
This culminated in some exceptional A-level grades, which included A*’s in Maths, Further Mathematics and Physics, in addition to an A in Economics.
The outgoing Deputy Head Boy attained an astonishing 597 out of a possible 600 marks in his Mathematics papers, and he will now move on to the University of Durham where he will study Physics.
Matthew has been one of the true success stories emanating from Rydal Penrhos in recent years, and was part of the U18 Boys’ Hockey squad that secure the National Schools’ Championship in Newtown earlier in the spring.
He also made history by becoming the first ever pupil to receive full colours in Football thanks to his sterling efforts throughout the season.
Deputy Head Tim Cashell, said: “This was a truly incredible set of A-level results from Matthew, who has worked incredibly hard throughout his studies and our staff have been on hand to give him the right amount of support and guidance whenever it has been required.
“It has been an unprecedented year of success in terms of our A-level results which Matthew has contributed to significantly, and his leadership as Deputy Head Boy in assisting across all areas of school life has been a real highlight of his overall efforts."
