Former pupils discuss Dentistry with 6th Formers
June 9, 2021

Two former Rydal Penrhos pupils held a virtual discussion on their path through Dentistry with current Sixth Formers.

Giving our Sixth Form pupils every possible ounce of knowledge before they head onto the next stage of their respective journeys is something we are always striving to do at Rydal Penrhos.

Year 12 and 13 not only benefit from a strong curriculum and incredible opportunities outside of the classroom, but the school also provides exceptional support and guidance with weekly UCAS lessons and special sessions that provides them invaluable insight into their potential career paths.

This is something that has benefitted our pupils considerably and ensures they are fully prepared for the challenges that lie ahead. Couple this with the exceptional exam results and outstanding value-added scores, and Rydal Penrhos Sixth Form is the perfect place for a young person to spend the final two years of their school life.

Pupils gain a close attachment with the school and we are in contact with almost 3,000 alumni from years gone by. Not only this, but many of them also are more than happy to pass on their experience and helpful advice to those following in their footsteps ahead of some big upcoming decisions.

Another fine example of this took place on Monday 7 June when former pupils Adam Sabri and Hannah Davies held a virtual session with three current Year 12 pupils who are looking deeper into pursuing Dentistry once their studies at Rydal Penrhos come to a conclusion.

Shruthi Ganapathi, Simeon Murphy Thomas and Suhas Shekar were all given a first-hand insight from Adam and Hannah about their time in the Dentistry profession and higher education so far. They also had the opportunity to ask some questions about important factors of the application process such as entrance tests, preparing for personal statements and their experience as dentists.

Hannah attended the University of Liverpool and is now working as a Dentist at a Hospital in Gateshead. She attended the school from 2007-11 and became a highly valued member of the Rydal Penrhos community with success across her academic subjects and sporting activities.

Adam was a former member of the school’s Rugby Academy and earned the position of Head Boy during his final year at Rydal Penrhos among many other impressive accolades.

He is currently in his final year of studying Dentistry at the University of Cardiff after achieving some superb A Level results during his time at the school.

The talk was arranged by the school’s economics teacher and head of careers Mike Farnell, who keeps in touch with many of the school’s alumni and is proud of their progress. We would like to thank both Adam and Hannah for giving up their time to help our current pupils.
