“From Rydal Penrhos to The Performing Arts”

Leading up to our Sixth Form Information Evening on Wednesday 25 November (from 5pm), we will be running a series focusing on just a teaser of recent success stories from Rydal Penrhos Sixth.

Amy Yue has always had a flavour for the performing arts – an area she thrived in during her time at Rydal Penrhos – and this eventually saw the former pupil attain a place at the prestigious Goldsmiths, University of London to continue her dream of possible stardom in the future.

The former boarding pupil has been accepted onto their Musical Theatre course after a strenuous application process.

Her love for the stage and all things musical has always been evident, with Amy contributing significantly to various concerts with a polished vocal ability that received widespread plaudits from anyone that ever heard her sing.

Arguably her crowning moment at Rydal Penrhos came during the Dramatic Society production of Les Miserables, which saw Amy play Cossette with aplomb during one of the greatest theatrical productions ever witnessed at the school.

More than 1,000 audience members also saw Amy on stage during the RPS Showstoppers event in 2018, with her confidence also seeing the 2019 leaver receive a prestigious honour in her homeland of China.

Amy was chosen from thousands of other hopefuls to perform live on stage at the Spring Gala Festival over the Chinese New Year period, which was shown live to millions across the region and saw Amy sing with some well-known and famous faces from the Far East.

Amy also hit the headlines this year thanks to an exceptional performance in her Grade 8 singing examination administered by the Associated Board of the Royal Schools’ of Music, with the pupil attaining a high Distinction after securing 140 out of a possible 150 marks.
