Ben completes Veterinary Medicine degree
September 15, 2021

Former Rydal Penrhos pupil Ben Squibb has completed his Veterinary Medicine degree and has already secured employment.

We are always delighted to hear about the success of our former pupils. Rydal Penrhos takes great pride in giving our eager learners the best possible foundation to build ahead of higher education and the working world, with many of the school’s alumni currently thriving at high-profile companies across the globe as a result.

Rydal Penrhos does this with a distinct pupil-centred approach to teaching. A high teacher to pupil ratio enables our incredible staff time to nurture each young person or child under their care to reach targets and goal that are constantly monitored and discussed.

This has brought some exceptional GCSE and A Level results as well as high value-added scores in recent years.

Ben Squibb, who left Rydal Penrhos in 2016 after a successful time at the school, recently completed his five-year degree course in Veterinary Medicine from the University of Bristol, passing his examinations with flying colours to earn the prestigious qualification.

This represents a significant achievement for Ben, who left a lasting impression at Rydal Penrhos both within his studies and also as part of the school’s tremendous First XV rugby team that featured a wealth of current RGC players and Welsh youth internationals at the time.

Not only this, but Ben has also managed to obtain employment at a Veterinary Practice situated in Ellesmere, Shropshire, which he began in July and is currently enjoying.

The school received a love email from Ben’s mother telling us about the news, where she also thanked Rydal Penrhos for all they did for him during his time with us.

We could not be prouder of Ben on completing such a challenging degree and attaining a job in his desired field. The school wishes him every bit of success in his new role.
