Pupil-centred focus bringing rapid growth in numbers
May 12, 2021

Rydal Penrhos’ strong commitment to being pupil-centered has resulted in a rapid growth in pupil numbers over the last year.

“Every school works hard to be the best they can be but Rydal Penrhos goes one step further; we strive to make sure that every pupil is the best they can be also.” – Mrs Lucy Davies.

Although there has been a period of significant adjustment over the last 12 months both in education and day-to-day life, Rydal Penrhos continues to go from strength to strength thanks to recent plans implemented by senior leadership, coupled with exceptional teaching and a supportive parent body that enable pupils through the whole school to achieve or even exceed their respective targets.

This has resulted in a surge of interest from prospective pupils and their families and rapid growth in pupil numbers over the last year. Such has been the level of interest, the school are currently in the process of appointing more teaching staff to cope with the growing demand for places.

It is no secret that the school’s recent success comes from a strong focus on its pupils with a child-centred approach that has proven highly beneficial. Something we are keen to continue and grow long into the future.

Mrs Lucy Davies, one of the school’s heads, is a former pupil that cares deeply about the school, its staff and the learners under her care.

She boasts a wealth of experience in schools across the globe and her qualifications include an M.A.in Educational Leadership, a B.A. Hons in Anthropology, a PGCE in Primary Education, a PGCDL in Dyslexia and Literacy and an NPQH in Headship Qualification.

She said: “We make sure that every pupil counts. We look forward to working in a true partnership with parents and carers to ensure that every pupil gets the opportunities they need and deserve in order to truly love learning.

“Smaller classes, specialist teachers and a wide range of curricular and extra-curricular activities ensure that learning is dynamic, individualised and child-centred.

“We want our pupils to be confident, kind, resilient and curious; we want them to be happy learners who know how to learn and want to learn new things every day.”

All staff at the school are made fully aware of Rydal Penrhos’ rich and proud history and its importance to the community.

When this is combined with implementing modern-day educational methods, it’s not hard to see why examination results remain at an exceptional level, value-added scores are way above the national average and pupils are thriving across all areas of school life.

“The school certainly gave me a love of learning and I know that it still has that special blend of academic rigour alongside excellent individual pastoral care,” added Mrs Davies.

“Our children are an important part of us, we love them and want the best for them.

“We want the best school for them, and we want them to be loved by that school and given as many opportunities as possible.”
