Cadet Cambrian Patrol Practice Weekend

  • Friday 28 January until Sunday 30 January

The school’s Combined Cadet Force initiative will be heading off for a Cadet Cambrian Patrol Practice Weekend, which is sure to be another highly beneficial experience for all involved.

Under the supervision of staff, cadets will take part in a series of exciting activities to improve vital life skills such as communication, working within a team, taking the initiative, and working to deadlines in pursuit of the same goal.

Rugby Union 1st XV vs Cheadle Hulme School

  • Wednesday 2 February

Rydal Penrhos’ first XV rugby team will be taking the field for a competitive fixture against Cheadle Hulme School.

The school extended rugby fixtures into the spring term due to pupils missing so much activity over the last two years due to COVID-19, with Executive Principal John Waszek taking over first-team training during this period.

This will be on top of the school’s Rugby 7s calendar and is also set to include some 10-a-side games.

Visit from Holocaust Survivor

  • Tuesday 8 February
  • Key Stage 5

Rydal Penrhos will be honoured to welcome a survivor of the Holocaust during World War II, which remains one of the most traumatic events in human history.

The visitor is set to speak about her own experiences, before taking part in a question and answer session with staff and pupils in attendance.

Netball vs Liverpool College

  • Saturday 12 February
  • 1st VII, U15A, U13A, U13B, U12A

Aspiring netballers conclude a busy half-term of fixtures with competitive games against Liverpool College.

Pupils have been developing their skills encouragingly under the guidance of the school’s coaching staff, with training sessions, matches and conditioning work all being undertaken on a weekly basis.

National Pool Lifeguard qualification

  • 21-26 February
  • For pupils and staff

The National Pool Lifeguard qualification is available to all Rydal Penrhos staff and Sixth Form (Key Stage 5) pupils over 16 years of age.

This provides pupils with a coveted qualification should they wish to pursue summer work in the leisure industry, which is another fine example of the school covering all bases when it comes to their future.
