Debra Keogh appointed to Governing Board
January 18, 2022

Rydal Penrhos is thrilled to announce that Debra Keogh has joined the school’s Governing Board with immediate effect.

Rydal Penrhos is absolutely indebted to its Governing Body. They play a significant role in the strategic direction of the school, working closely with senior leaders to ensure the provision for our pupils remains to an exceptional standard.

The school recently announced that Deborah McKinnel has been elected as the new Chair of Governors, with Julian Barnes formally retiring after making a lasting contribution amid challenging recent times due to COVID-19 and something everyone at Rydal Penrhos will be eternally thankful for.

In another exciting development, the school is thrilled to announce that Debra Keogh has also agreed to join the Governing Board and brings a wealth of educational experience to the school.
