Open Days and Admissions Events

A number of admissions events take place throughout the academic year to offer prospective parents and pupils an introduction to Rydal Penrhos.

These include:

  • Open Days – an opportunity to see the full potential of what a day in the life at Rydal Penrhos can entail. We open our doors to visitors from both in- and outside the school community as pupils take part in lessons, science experiments, sports practice and so much more.
  • Sixth Form Information Evening – an annual event that explores the features of a Rydal Penrhos Sixth Form education, from the specificities of the A-Level curriculum to the range of extra-curricular and super-curricular opportunities on offer. All this takes place in the Ferguson Centre, the school’s Sixth Form hub.
  • Assessment Day – candidates for entry in Year 7 or above complete the school’s entrance assessment, the Cognitive Ability Test from GL Assessment, and participate in a short interview as part of this annual January event.
