A Sixth Form pupil at Rydal Penrhos took home a coveted award in memory of one of the most pioneering female figures in the school’s history.
Imogen Camp, a Year 13 pupil at the school, won the Rosa Hovey Memorial Scholarship Prize from the school’s annual Speech Day event prior to the half term break.
The 18-year-old received the award from former pupil and special guest speaker Dr Victoria Galbraith, together with a contribution that will go towards University books when Imogen departs Rydal Penrhos this summer.
It has been a fitting end to an incredible time at the school for Imogen, who began her journey as a Reception class Prep School pupil back in 2003.
She has achieved a significant amount during that time academically in areas such as Biology and Mathematics, and Imogen has also been part of the Welsh senior chess squad and has competed at two World Championships.
Imogen’s hugely successful university application process saw her secured a conditional place at the Queens’ College at the University of Cambridge, where she will study Natural Sciences providing she receives the necessary A-level grades in Biology, Chemistry, Further Mathematics and Physics.
Senior School Head Sally Ann Harding, said: “Imogen is a fine example of what can be achieved from a Rydal Penrhos education and she is thoroughly deserving of this year’s Rosa Hovey Memorial Scholarship.
“He incredible natural ability from an academic perspective has been enhanced considerably by our magnificent staff team here at Rydal Penrhos throughout her school journey, and we are confident that Imogen is destined for great things as she progresses through university and her working life.”
