Rydal Penrhos: Shruthi’s path to outstanding GCSE results
August 25, 2020

A supremely talented individual who has secured a host of outstanding accolades, Shruthi Ganapathi’s time at Rydal Penrhos has been nothing short of exemplary so far.

The pupil has been a huge part of the Rydal Penrhos community and has excelled both from an academic perspective and through the large range of extra-curricular opportunities on offer.

Shruthi has now secured an outstanding set of GCSE results, with three 9s in English Literature, German (2nd Language) and Music, in addition to four 8s in English (1st Language), Geography, Mathematics and Religious Studies along with A* grades in Biology, Chemistry and Physics, and she has rounded-off her exceptional set of results with a Distinction in Additional Mathematics.

This will stand her in tremendously good stead as Shruthi now heads to Rydal Penrhos’ Sixth Form, where she is going to study Biology, Chemistry, Geography and Mathematics at A Level.

She is planning to pursue a career in Dentistry, and Shruthi is confident that with the help of Rydal Penrhos’ dedicated teaching staff, her dreams will be realised.

“The support I have received from teaching staff throughout this process has been incredible. They have always been on hand to answer any questions I might have had. And I was not hesitant approaching them, because of the confidence that they have instilled in me.

“The enrichment opportunities available also provided me with some brilliant experiences. I expect the Sixth Form to be rewarding and hard work, but I am really excited about the next step.”

Her time at Rydal Penrhos began at Year 7, and Shruthi has taken full advantage of the considerable opportunities available for each pupil at the Prep and Senior sites.

The pupil’s talent in the Performing Arts has been a notable highlight, with Shruthi’s contribution to the Rydal Penrhos Dramatic Society productions of Les Miserables and Annie the Musical coming in for significant praise.

Shruthi’s outstanding vocal talent has also come to the fore at various concerts throughout her time at the school, and this has brought some tremendous grading success from recent Associated Board of the Royal School of Music and the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art assessments.


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