Other performances of note came from Sophie Madden, Emma Hackman, Lili Northcott and the charismatic Niall Richardson, with Shruthi Ganapathi, Beau Holden, Philippa Thomas, Ellen Jones, Josh Peevor, Dami Animashain, Bella Rutherford and Sophie Williams all producing polished performances.

The older members of the school community also showed their class, with Darcie Harker-Weston, Isobel Rogerson, Alicia Zhou, Amy Yue, Harry Hackman, Finlay Hare, Barooj Maqsood, Charlie Freytag, Zahra Shamsi, Niamh Hall and Ruby James all ensuring that the evening was another enormous success.

Deputy Head Tim Cashell, said: “It was a thoroughly enjoyable evening and congratulations go to Mrs Bloomfield and each pupil that took part in the show.

“There is something very special about seeing a pupil thriving on stage, and this is something we actively encourage here at Rydal Penrhos thanks to our outstanding creative and performing arts provision.”
