Rydal Penrhos is thrilled to confirm an action-packed schedule for Founders’ Weekend 2022, which promises to be yet another incredible occasion.
Being a pupil at Rydal Penrhos institutes a life-changing connection, symbolised by lifelong membership of the Rydal Penrhos Society, our alumni association.
The activities of the alumni association are varied. It works to help our current pupils in very practical ways, securing them career advice, professional mentors, and work experience opportunities. It also publishes a termly newsletter that shares stories both from school life and alumni themselves.
The Society also organises events. In the past, we have held Regional Dinners in London, Chester, Cambridge, and Oxford, and abroad in Paris and Hong Kong. Last September’s Founders’ Weekend saw a host of celebratory events, while this summer we are hosting the class of 1982 for their reunion.
Rydal Penrhos is now thrilled to confirm its Founders’ Weekend 2022 schedule, which will take place on Friday 9 September and Saturday 10 September, which has something for everyone and all our wonderful alumni are welcome to attend.
It will be an occasion not to miss and we hope to see as many former pupils back at the school as possible.
