Liam secures Music grading double on the same day

A talented Preparatory School musician added to her list of impressive accolades with more grading success.

Liam Farrell, a Year 6 pupil at Rydal Penrhos, sat two Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music assessments in the same day, despite taking part in a busy schedule for the outgoing year group as they prepared to make the transition to secondary education.

The 11-year-old began his success on the day with a Merit in his Grade Four Clarinet examination, which represents a significant achievement for someone so young.

This was swiftly followed up by a Grade Two Piano assessment, which he passed with flying colours to secure a memorable double from a busy day for the Prep School pupil.

This is the latest in a series of outstanding achievements from Liam, who has developed significantly across all areas of Rydal Penrhos life thanks to support and guidance from passionate staff at the Prep School site.

He will look to continue this when he makes the transition to the Senior School in September, where he was recently awarded an Academic and Music scholarship.

Director of Music Pete Williams, said: “I was thrilled to hear of Liam’s recent grading triumphs, which further outlines the incredible progression he is making with both his Clarniet and Piano playing.

“To gain a Grade Four merit at his age is a truly outstanding achievement, and I look forward to helping him achieve even more throughout his time at our thriving Senior School here at Rydal Penrhos.”
