Millie arrived at Rydal Penrhos as a Year 7 pupil in 2013 and has emerged as one of their real success stories of the school’s Academic scholarship initiative.
The 17-year-old has been a hugely influential member of the school community and has taken full advantage of the wealth of different and varied academic and co-curricular activities offered across all areas of Rydal Penrhos, something that has aided her overall development considerably.
This was further reflected in Millie’s truly exceptional GCSE results this summer, with the pupil securing A* marks in Biology, Chemistry, Geography, History, Mathematics and Physics, in addition to eight grades in English (first language), English Literature, French and Religious Studies in accordance with the new grading system.
There was further cause for celebration in the form of her Distinction in her additional Mathematics paper.
During her time at Rydal Penrhos, Millie was also appointed to the Amnesty International Youth Advisory Board following a successful application process last year.
As part of her involvement with the board, Millie travelled to London for various meetings with the select group, where they will discussed different ways to improve Amnesty and offered thoughts on the work being done to highlight major human rights issues affecting people worldwide.
Millie’s academic efforts were honoured at Rydal Penrhos’ annual Speech Day event earlier this year, where she received the Geography and History prizes from special guest and former pupil Flt Lt Nathan Jones as a result of her outstanding contribution in both subjects.
