AN INDEPENDENT school in Denbigh has expanded its boarding provision.

Myddelton College is now able to welcome an additional 35 students and can now accomodate 100 boarders. 

Andrew Allman, headmaster at Myddelton College, said: "Myddelton College has witnessed a substantial surge in demand within the core day market and an unprecedented desire for boarding than ever before.

"To align our boarding capacity with the growing requirement for beds, we've made substantial investments."

This expansion, completed following "tireless efforts" by the Estate Team, not only accommodates the increasing demand for boarding but ensures that more students have the opportunity to be a part of Myddelton's "thriving educational community."

Last month, the Free Press reported that two students from Myddelton College would be heading to Oxford after achieving outstanding A-level results. Penny Johnson, 18, from Colwyn Bay, and Coby Chan, also 18, from Hong Kong, were both named as stand-out performers.

Head of Boarding Coby, who last year won a gold award at the Royal Society of Chemistry Olympiad and gained an A-star in his Chemistry A-level at just 16, added further A-stars in Maths and Physics and an A in Further Maths.

He will return to the UK in late September to start at Oxford University.
