Rydal Penrhos scholarships and bursaries

Please note: bursaries and scholarships are only eligible for pupils new to the senior school.

The school offers scholarship and bursary awards for entry into Year 7, Year 9 and the Sixth form. These are determined by the entrance examination, scholarship exam (academic ability awards only), an interview with the Headmaster and, where appropriate, a practical assessment of the candidate’s proficiency in his or her chosen area:

  • Academic ability
  • Art
  • Drama
  • Music
  • Sport

A full information booklet on our scholarships and bursaries is available and includes details of the entrance examination and application forms. For further details about all aspects of the admission process, please contact Jenny Marsden in the Admissions Office on 01492 530155 or by email: jmarsden@rydal-penrhos.com

The closing date for bursary and scholarship applications usually falls on Friday 11 November prior to the September of intended entry. However, late applications for full fee paying places can still be considered.

Forces discounts

Forces bursaries are available on application for boarding, and the school is also eligible for the North Wales Day Allowance. Services families at RAF Valley who are presently sending their children to the school would be happy to talk to prospective parents and children about their experiences.
