Pupil Profiles: Maggie

In the lead-up to our Open Morning events in April, we will be taking a look at the pupils that make Rydal Penrhos such a fantastic place to live and learn.

The latest Prep School pupil under the spotlight is Maggie McDuff:

  • Name: Maggie McDuff
  • Year group: Year 6
  • Pupil status: Prep
  • House: Brecon

Charismatic, energetic and full of life, Maggie is a symbol of everything good at Rydal Penrhos’ Prep School and is simply a pleasure to have here.

The daughter of current Year 6 teacher Emma and former Headmaster Roger, the nine-year-old has emerged as one of the prominent figures within the school community, thanks in no small part to her vibrant attitude and willingness to attempt everything and get the most from every experience.

Her efforts with the Pauline Quirk Performing Arts Academy have gained significant praise in recent months alongside fellow Year 5 pupil Grace Watkins, with Maggie winning the Most Achieved in Comedy and Drama after impressing her coaches with some outstanding performances including at the Rhos on Sea Winter Fair.

Maggie’s academic talents are also a source of great pride as she continues to push herself in all areas under the superb guidance of experienced and hard-working staff at Rydal Penrhos.

She is a very talented artist, has a fantastic knowledge of all things science and has gained a number of notable efforts in the School’s Spelling Challenge, which has been set up with a view to improving vocabulary and provide each pupil taking the challenge with a sense of enormous achievement.

Thanks to her ongoing commitment to getting better in the sporting environment under the guidance of Head of Girls’ Games Jude Pyves, Maggie has also emerged as a prominent member of the Girls’ U10 Netball team to further enhance her credentials as she prepares for her final year at our Prep site from September.

Rydal Penrhos will be holding Senior and Prep Open Morning events on Friday, April 26 and Saturday 27 from 9.30am, and to book your place contact Admissions Officer Jenny Marsden on 01492 530155 or email admissions@rydalpenrhos.com.
