Prep School Craft Club get creative with bird-themed activity
October 20, 2020

Rydal Penrhos Prep School pupils got creative and learned all about an important environmental issue during a recent after school activity session.

The hugely popular Craft Club is part of the exciting set of activities devised by Rydal Penrhos’ dedicated staff team at the end of their typical day in and out of the classroom, which further develops valuable early skills in their field of interest.

Each pupil has gained a significant amount during their first half term of Craft Club, with the group ending a successful few weeks with another task which involved using recycled CDs and bits of scrap paper to make artistic birds.

In addition to igniting their creativity, the session also saw the studious and inquisitive pupils ask plenty of insightful questions about the process of recycling, why it’s important, together with the short and long-term benefits of for the climate.

Rydal Penrhos Prep School has been at the forefront of environmental initiatives thanks to the sterling work done by the Eco Committee under the leadership of teacher Julie Woodthorpe.

This continues to be at the forefront of the school’s pupil leadership programme that has increased in significance across all year groups since the appointment of Lucy Davies as Prep School head.

The programme of after school Clubs and Activities is open to all Rydal Penrhos pupils from Reception through to Year 6 and will be available following their normal lesson times at the end of each day.

The Prep School’s exceptional teaching staff have produced a diverse series of clubs and activities to enjoy throughout the academic year, which will further develop key skills in a relaxed setting away from the classroom.

They are focused on five categories:

  • Creative Arts
  • Performing Arts
  • Reading, Games and Quizzes
  • Sport and Activity
  • Wellbeing and Personal Skills

The new programme has something for everyone and will be supervised by teaching staff.


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