Cyd Cowley to speak at latest Scientific Society lecture
January 21, 2020

A former Rydal Penrhos pupil is returning to his roots to speak at an upcoming academic event.

Cyd Cowley, who left the school in 2015, will be the special guest at the latest Scientific Society lecture on Tuesday, January 28 in the Carnegie Room.

The 22-year-old will be discussing the topic of ‘Researching Fusion’, where he will talk about his experiences with the complex topic as a PhD student.

He will also be speaking on the way technology can combat the current energy crisis, and how nuclear fusion is affecting our society.

Cyd was an immensely strong academic during his time at Rydal Penrhos, scoring an exceptional 44 out of a possible 45 points from his International Baccalaureate examinations, which put him among the best in the country in 2015 and was one of the highest scores in the school’s history.

This followed on from a truly extraordinary set of GCSE results, where Cyd attained A* grades in all subjects.

Senior School Head Sally Ann Harding, said: “We are always thrilled to welcome back our former pupils, who are always looking to assist the next generation with their academic progress whenever they can.

“Cyd is another tremendous example of what can be achieved from a Rydal Penrhos education and this will be a very informative lecture for those in attendance.”

The lecture will run from 3.40-4.20pm and for more information contact Sixth Form duo Morgan Kendall and Richard Wolfendale.
