Rydal Penrhos School

Open Days, visits and tasters

Our website and prospectus offer you the facts about Rydal Penrhos School; a visit to the school will tell you you so much more. We have provided a useful list of steps to help you make an informed decision when choosing a school.


Our Open Morning will be held on Saturday, October 7 from 9am-1pm and is a relaxed and informal event, designed to give visitors a flavour of the unrivalled education and extra-curricular activities the senior and prep schools have to offer. It will also include an individual tour led by one of our pupils, a wide range of demonstrations and presentations for everyone to enjoy, as well as refreshments.

Visiting Rydal Penrhos for one of our Open Doors events is a highly popular first option to familiarise yourself with the school. These are informal events, which give everyone the chance to see the school on a normal working day.

Open Doors 2016 is on Friday, November 25 from 9am-12pm.

This is one day prior to our annual Open Morning event and will give families the perfect opportunity to witness first-hand what goes on at the Prep School during a typical day, with access to our superb classrooms and sports facilities.

The initiative was launched last year and will now become a regular feature at the school following the initial success.

Anyone wishing to book a place at next month’s open doors event should contact SWilliams@rydalpenrhos.com or call 01492 530155.

Family Visits

Visits differ from Open Days in that families make an individual appointment for a tour of the whole school, led by a senior member of staff. There is the opportunity to ask more in-depth questions at this stage. A visit ends with a meeting with our Admissions Officer, who will answer any questions you may have about applying for a place at Rydal Penrhos. We are always happy to meet prospective parents and pupils and would be delighted to show you around. If you’re interested in booking a visit, click here to register your details with Jenny.

Taster Days

If your son or daughter enjoyed a recent Open Day or visit to the school, we recommend they come on a taster day to get to know our pupils. He or she will be assigned a buddy for the day and will experience a full school day of lessons and activities, including lunch. Taster days can be booked by calling Jenny on 01492 530155

For boarding pupils, we can offer a taster that includes a night in one of our boarding houses. Here, your son or daughter can meet some of the pupils with whom they may be living in the future, and develop a better feeling for the life that goes on after the end of the school day.
