Christmas tree lights switched on at Senior and Prep
December 4, 2020

The big Christmas lights switch-on at Rydal Penrhos.

There was plenty of festive excitement in their air as Rydal Penrhos’ senior and prep sites both held their Christmas lights switch on.

This is always an exciting time of the year at Rydal Penrhos, with the end of term fast approaching and everyone getting into the Christmas spirit despite the normal calendar of events looking a little different due to social distancing measures relating to COVID-19.

Undeterred, the school’s dedicated staff team have worked tirelessly to put the necessary measures in place to ensure each pupil can enjoy the run-up to their break and get the most out of their studies in the process.

At senior school, Head Boy Richard Wolfendale and Head Girl Anna Parry-Williams had the honour of turning on the lights, and they were joined by a staff member to mark a special occasion.

Mrs Gaynor Davies, who has given so much to Rydal Penrhos across both prep and senior for more than 30 years, celebrated her 60th birthday on Thursday 3 December and she was also invited to switch on the lights in recognition of her exceptional dedication to the school.

At the prep school, the Head Boy and Head Girl team of Noah Roberts and Amelie Skinner took time out of their busy day of learning to join head, Lucy Davies, for their version of the switch-on, with the tree overlooking a stunning view of the Colwyn Bay seafront.

This would not have been possible without the hard work of the Rydal Penrhos estates team, who constantly go above and beyond the call of duty to maintain the highest standards of appearance across a stunning place to learn.


Rydal Penrhos is now able to offer private tours to prospective pupils and their families.
