Talented photographer Morgan Roberts receives offer from University of Leeds

A talented photographer at Rydal Penrhos has received recognition for his hard work with a university offer.

Morgan Roberts, an Upper Sixth Form pupil at the school, has secured a place at the University of Leeds after a successful application process.

The 18-year-old, who began life at Rydal Penrhos as a Year 5 pupil in 2009, will be studying a Bachelor of Arts in Fashion Photography.

He has been one of the leading figures in the pupil-led campaign to renovate the Sixth Form Ferguson Centre, which has raised more than £36,000 of their £50,000 target so far.

The Prefect played a significant role in editing a special video relating to the project, while also taking charge of the photography associated with the campaign promotion.

Morgan also presented the ambitious plans to Rydal Penrhos’ Governing Body, something that received glowing praise from Head of Sixth Form Peter Lavery.

Mr Lavery, said: “This is another well-deserved offer for one of our most talented pupils, and congratulations go to Morgan on receiving this offer.

“He has demonstrated a tremendous maturity throughout the final two years of his school life, and he has shown an impressive motivation to not only pursue a career path, but also take the necessary steps to ensure he maximises his chances of succeeding in his chosen field.

“This is something he can be enormously proud of and everyone at Rydal Penrhos is absolutely thrilled for him.”
