Excellent Value for an Invaluable Service

Rydal Penrhos looks to add value for its pupils by improving their exam results compared to the average school. However, we also seek to add value for parents.

Our fees represent excellent value as they include as many features of a Rydal Penrhos education as possible, reducing hidden extras to a minimum.

Our fees include more than simply the principal charges for tuition, exercise and text books, publications and team fares.

School meals are included as standard in the school fee, as we believe that proper nutrition is an essential part of any child’s education. Similarly, all trips and excursions that are essential to the curriculum are included.

For older pupils, we have also integrated the cost of academic examination entries (excluding re-sits) into the fees; this represents a saving of £500 in Year 11, £200 in Year 12 pupil and £350 in Year 13.

Pre-School: Foundation Phase Early Education Grant

The Welsh government wishes to ensure that all parents and carers have access to subsidised part-time early education for their children from the beginning of the term following their 3rd birthday. The Rydal Penrhos Nursery is a Conwy County Council-approved setting which deducts the full amount of grant money received from your child-care fees.

If your child is 3 years old between 1 September and 31 March per calendar year, then you could be eligible for a Foundation Phase Early Education Grant. Please ask for more details.
