Rydal Penrhos Gallery: Art pupils get back to business
July 2, 2020

Talented artists at Rydal Penrhos were welcomed back to the department this week following the coronavirus lockdown.

There was plenty of excitement in the air as some of Rydal Penrhos’ most creative minds once again descended on the impressive Art department to continue their development.

This included Year 12 pupils adding to their A-level portfolios, and other year groups also got stuck into plenty of exciting activities with department head Mark Sherrington.

A series of thought-provoking projects over the online learning period from Mr Sherrington and teacher Suzy Morris have really captured the imagination of senior and prep school pupils, which resulted in some incredible final pieces.

Things have looked completely different throughout the school this week as social distancing measures are implemented in accordance with Welsh Government guidance.

Sally-Ann Harding, senior school head of Rydal Penrhos, said: “It has been absolutely wonderful to see our pupils come back to school in their ‘bubbles’ this week.

“Their happy faces seeing one another for the first time face-to-face in months makes all the hard work worthwhile.

“This is an unprecedented time for everyone, and I would like to commend our pupils on their exemplary behaviour and out staff for going above and beyond to ensure that Rydal Penrhos is a safe environment.”

Rydal Penrhos is now able to offer socially distanced tours to prospective pupils and their families. For more information email admissions@rydalpenrhos.com or book online at https://rydalpenrhos.com/open-days-visits.
