A hard-working Rydal Penrhos pupil has been rewarded for his fine efforts throughout the academic year with a special award.
Tom McCloskey, an Upper Sixth pupil at the school, took home the Rankilor Prize for General Progress from Rydal Penrhos’ annual Speech Day, which was held earlier this year.
The 18-year-old enjoyed a standout final year at the school before heading off on his further education journey, having excelled both academically and on the sporting field over the past few months.
He produced another rousing display to make it back-to-back Boys’ Mile victories at the school’s annual Sports Day, while also performing well as part of Rydal Penrhos’ Rugby, Hockey and Football sides.
Tom also gave up his time to take part in a special charity football match against Llandudno FC Legends, and has also shown an immense amount of promise in his A-level studies and revision earlier this year during the stressful period before exam season.
Deputy Head Tim Cashell, said: “Tom has contributed a significant amount during his time at Rydal Penrhos, and he is a thoroughly deserving winner of the award.
“He will be sorely missed here and hope he goes on to achieve great things thanks to the education that Rydal Penrhos has provided.”
