As part of a series of features leading up to our Sixth Form scholarship application deadline on Monday, November 12, we take a look at some of our current Year 12 and 13 pupils that have thrived thanks to their involvement with the scheme.
We continue with Music scholar Samuel Jones:
A bubbly personality with a heart of gold, Sam arrived at Rydal Penrhos as a Year 6 pupil in 2012 and was awarded a Music Scholarship to the Senior School the following year.
The 16-year-old is an enormously talented individual who has contributed across a wide range of areas of school life, firmly establishing himself as a valued and respected member of the Rydal Penrhos community thanks to his effort, enthusiasm and development under the expert guidance of dedicated teaching and support staff.
He comes to life with a saxophone in his hand, contributing significantly to the school’s Jazz Band at events throughout the community, in addition to a plethora of outstanding performances at school concerts and inter-house competitions.
Sam has also achieved success in a sporting environment thanks to his involvement with the school’s U16 squad that secured the Welsh Schools’ Championship earlier this year.
His academic progress was further evident in the GCSE results recorded during the summer, with Sam securing A grades in Biology, Chemistry, Design Technology and Physics, in addition to an eight in Mathematics and four six marks in English (first language), English Literature, Food & Nutrition, French and Religious Studies in accordance with the new grading system.
Sam is also lending support and guidance to younger members of the Rydal Penrhos community after successfully securing a place on the Sixth Form Peer Mentor team after impressing during the selection process.
