Rydal Penrhos announces Deputy Head Boy/Girl team
October 7, 2020

Rydal Penrhos Prep School is thrilled to announce the appointment of its Deputy Head Boy and Girl team for the 2020/21 academic year.

After an impressive application process that brought some exceptional entries from Year 6 pupils at Rydal Penrhos, Emily Nurse and Gethin Winfield were chosen for the high-profile leadership positions, with the pair receiving their leadership badges from Prep School head Lucy Davies last week.

Both Emily and Gethin will work closely with Head Boy Noah Roberts and Head Girl Amelie Skinner in the coming months. One of their primary objectives is to provide a strong support system for younger members of the Prep School community, which is a responsibility each member of the Prefect team takes very seriously.

The deputies will also fill-in for the Head Boy/Girl team when they are unable to fulfil specific commitments, and they will also be tasked with leading the School Council to discuss matters and potential improvements across the site.

Emily has been a member of the Rydal Penrhos community for the entirety of her education, joining as a Pre-Schooler in 2013.

She has developed her academic skills considerably under the expert guidance of Prep School teaching staff, with her polite demeanour and caring nature sure to bring a significant amount to her new position,

Gethin arrived at Rydal Penrhos as a Year 5 pupil and has made a tremendously positive impression in a short space of time.

He integrated superbly with his peers and has made the most out of the wealth of opportunities available throughout all year groups from an academic and extra-curricular perspective.

Pupil voice and leadership has been a noticeable and increasing influence at the Prep School during Mrs Davies‘ headship, which is a great way for them to make a difference, improve confidence and feel part of the Rydal Penrhos family.


Rydal Penrhos is now able to offer socially distanced tours to prospective pupils and their families.
