Welcome to Rydal Penrhos


Moving schools can be one of the most important moments in a child’s life.

On average, a child spends at least 2500 days, or the equivalent of 21 continuous months, in school during their formative early years; a time during which they are constantly learning and orientating themselves within the big wide world.

Finding the right school environment – one that can make the most of every second, every crucial moment – can shape your child’s future in a way nothing else can.

At Rydal Penrhos, this is something we are keenly aware of in our approach to education. We pride ourselves on exceptional exam outcomes, based upon not just the headline results, but the individual improvement we can deliver for each child regardless their innate ability.

However, academic achievement must also be wedded to a quality holistic education; one that allows pupils to find their personal potential and develop the core values that define a person at a much deeper level than a GCSE or A-Level certificate.

We are delighted that you are considering Rydal Penrhos School. With more than 140 years of experience in nurturing confident, mature and well-educated young people, we thoroughly believe we are the right place for your child and would be delighted to share in the next chapter of your family’s future.
