A TALENTED Colwyn Bay performing artist achieved a hugely impressive result from the London Academy of Music and Performing Arts.

Amy Yue, a Year 12 pupil at Rydal Penrhos, recently attempted to secure her Grade 8 Gold Medal Certificate in Musical Theatre (Solo).

The pupil produced a truly exceptional performance in front of adjudicators, which resulted in Amy attaining a Distinction for her efforts.

This achievement is even more impressive as Amy managed to score 95 out of a possible 100, putting her among the top candidates in the country.

She developed her performing skills as part of Rydal Penrhos’ specialist Speech and Drama department , with Amy nurturing her talent under the guidance and support of teacher Christina Bloomfield.

Senior School Head Sally Ann Harding, said: “This is an absolutely extraordinary result for Amy and one she can be enormously proud of.

“She is a natural on stage and lives for performing, with her passion for the Performing Arts matched by Mrs Bloomfield, who has been a revelation within our Speech and Drama department for some time now with great success.”
