The Rydal Penrhos Society consists of former pupils of Rydal School, Penrhos College and Rydal Penrhos, as well as current and former members of staff who have been nominated by the Head to become Honorary Members.

The Society is an amalgamation of The Old Rydalian Club and The Old Penrhosian Association, and is run by a committee of members. We feel that this is an important aspect of the Society as it means that it is run by you

When the world is so complicated, the simple gift of friendship is within all of our hands.


Anyone that is not on our mailing list but would like to keep in touch with everything here at Rydal Penrhos, then please fill out this form: Questionnaire and Data Protection Consent Update Form

Please send forms to Sarah James at for approval.



The objectives of the Society are to promote the interests of Rydal Penrhos and to facilitate social interaction between former pupils by:

  • Publishing and circulating news and information about the Society and the school.
  • Holding reunion events and functions throughout the year.
  • Encouraging activities held by branches, regional groups, sporting groups or similar.
  • Forming an international network to support and further the interests of the school.
  • To support associations which have connections with the school on educational, religious, charitable or similar matters.
  • To raise such funds as may be necessary from time to time to further the objectives of the Society.

The Society is here for you – let us help you organise your reunions, find lost friends and above all, re-ignite those memories from your school days.



We love to hear what former pupils are up to. If you have any news or announcements that you would like to share please get in touch! If you are not already on our mailing list, simply let us know your contact details, maiden name (if you have one) and the years that you were at school, and we will make sure you are included in all future communications.
