Ruby wins Jennifer Jones Cup for Drama

A gifted and enthusiastic performer was acknowledged for her high-quality level of performances on stage with a special award.

Ruby James, a Year 13 pupil at the school, picked up the Jennifer Jones Cup for Drama at the second annual Creative and Performing Arts Dinner, which was held at the recently refurbished Sixth Form Ferguson Centre.

The talented performer has been a hugely influential part of the school’s Dramatic Society over a prolonged period of time, which has seen her take the stage during a plethora of performances throughout her time at Rydal Penrhos’ Prep and Senior sites.

This included a valuable contribution to the sensational Les Misérables production last month, with her efforts during Annie the Musical and To Kill a Mockingbird also drawing widespread praise.

Her efforts within the A-level Drama programme have also been a source of great encouragement, with Ruby and her peers producing an excellent examination performance earlier this year.

The popular figure is the Granddaughter of former Rydal Penrhos Principal Michael James and has thrived with the extra responsibility in her Prefect and House Captain roles during the final year at the school.

Senior School Head Sally Ann Harding, said: “You never see Ruby without a smile on her face, and this infectious enthusiasm has significantly boosted our incredible Performing Arts provision here at Rydal Penrhos.

“Ruby demonstrates a real talent on stage and is a truly polished performer, and I know this is something she is looking to pursue as a possible career, which we wish her the very best of luck with.”
