Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Rydal Penrhos School is currently closed following government advice.
Our Prep School site is offering free childcare provision to keyworkers in the community. All calls made to the school are now being streamlined to the Prep site.
Please see the Coronavirus Information page located in the menu section of the site for the latest developments.
In Pre-Prep, children from the age of 4 to the age of 7 are taught, in three year groups called Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. Children enter Reception first after their time in our Early Years department or indeed moving from other nursery provision or home. It is a wonderful age group where really effective learning is about opening minds and encouraging the sharing of ideas, which in itself develops communication skills and the ability to work as a team.
The Prep department serves pupils aged 7-11.
At Rydal Penrhos Prep School, we strive to provide all pupils with a broad and balanced curriculum, generally following the National Curriculum for Wales and the standards set out by the DFE in the Primary National Strategies.
The curriculum is linked to that of the senior school, to enable a smooth transition between the schools. From Year 3 onwards, Maths and English are taught as form subjects and all the others are taught by subject specialists.
