Excitement builds for 2019 Open Afternoon
September 6, 2019

Exciting is building ahead of Rydal Penrhos’ annual Open Afternoon event next month.

Both Prep and Senior sites will be welcoming prospective pupils and their families, giving them a first-hand opportunity to see for themselves what goes on during a typical day at the school.

It will take place on Friday, October 4 from 2.30-5.30pm, giving those in attendance the perfect chance to view both facilities should they wish.

Among the highlights of the Open Afternoon will be individual tours of the school with pupil tour guides, and there will be a chance to speak with teaching and admissions staff, current parents and alumni to get a broader perspective of the day-to-day life of a pupil, the curriculum, pastoral care and what it is like to be a part of the school community.

There will be a host of things to enjoy throughout the showcase, including lesson demonstrations from core academic departments such as English, Mathematics and Science.

Staff and pupils will be taking part in classroom and outdoor activities as they would during a normal school day, which will include sessions in the Forest School and other facilities.

The school’s thriving co-curricular provision will also be providing demonstrations throughout the event, with Music, Art and Design, Drama and Sport featuring prominently.

Another exciting element to the Open Afternoon will be the exceptional Outdoor Education programme, with the Duke of Edinburgh scheme, CCF and Sailing provisions taking centre stage.

Anyone wishing to book their place at the Open Afternoon, or for more information, contact admissions officer Jenny Marsden on 01492 530155 or email admissions@rydalpenrhos.com.
