Rydal Penrhos is delighted to confirm its new Deputy Head Boy team for the 2019/20 academic year.
After a thorough assessment process, the school confirmed that Eddie Farrell and Ollie Gibson will officially take over from Miles Poller following the Easter break in their respective roles, so the Upper Sixth Formers can focus their time on revision ahead of their A-level examinations later this year.
Eddie’s time at Rydal Penrhos began as a Year 4 pupil back in 2010 and has been littered with exceptional achievements across a wide range of different areas.
He is an RYA Cymru Wales Sailing international and has secured a wealth of regional and national competition successes on the water.
Eddie is also a superb musician and contributes regularly to the school’s productions and concerts throughout the year, in addition to securing some outstanding GCSE results last summer in recognition of his impressive academic commitment and progress.
Ollie has made a massive impression of school life in a short space of time, turning his hand to almost anything to see him quickly emerge as a key cog in Rydal Penrhos’ thriving Sixth Form provision.
His performance as Javert in the Dramatic Society production of Les Misérables drew widespread plaudits, and Ollie has played a key contributing role in the school’s senior hockey and rugby sides during his initial period at the school that began in September.
Both Eddie and Ollie will no work with Head Boy Ioan Peake-Jones and the rest of the Prefect team in the coming months to boost the overall profile of the school and add to Rydal Penrhos’ legacy in their own way.
Senior School Head Sally Ann Harding, said: “Eddie and Ollie are fine role models for the younger members of our fantastic community here at Rydal Penrhos, and they are going to bring a significant amount to their new roles.
“I don’t think there is anything they do not excel at between them, and they are hugely deserving of this extra responsibility and all the praise coming their way.”
