James appointed Head Boy for 2022/23 academic year
September 6, 2022

Rydal Penrhos is delighted to confirm the appointment of James Copeland as Head Boy for the 2022/23 academic year.

The title of Head Boy is always a coveted one at Rydal Penrhos. Year 12 pupils when vying for the role have to put together an exceptional case to attain the position, including writing letters, being interviewed and being voted for by both staff and pupils within the school.

Many previous Heads of School have gone on to achieve great things in later life.

Richard Wolfendale and Arthur Hind did outstanding jobs during their stints as Head Boy in difficult circumstances over the last two years. Things were not easy for anybody thanks to educational lockdowns, COVID-19 restrictions, and the transition back to normality, but their leadership and willingness to keep spirits high in addition to progressing their studies is something that won’t soon be forgotten.

With Arthur now on the next stage of his journey at university after some exceptional A Level results, Rydal Penrhos is delighted to announce the appointment of James Copeland as Head Boy for the 2022/23 academic year.

James joined as a Reception class pupil and is proof of what can be attained from a Rydal Penrhos education. He is a strong academic who has also thrived in a sporting environment and his ability to lead is sure to be a tremendous asset to the entire school community in the coming months.

This was reflected in some outstanding GCSE grades from James before moving on to Sixth Form. The pupil attained three A* grades, one A, one 9, four 8s as well as distinctions in Additional Mathematics and Engineering.

James is also a key member of the school’s First XV rugby team and his endurance running has come in for significant praise at events such as Sports Day.

On behalf of everyone at Rydal Penrhos, we would like to congratulate James on his well-deserved appointment. We are confident you’ll thrive as our Head Boy during your final year with us.
