Gallery: Pupils weave through Mexican hat project
February 24, 2022

Year 7 and 8 pupils at Rydal Penrhos weaved their way through an exciting project surrounding Mexican hat design and creation with teacher Suzy Morris.

As one of the leading independent schools in the North West, Rydal Penrhos strives to provide richness through a breadth of experience and depth of study to every pupil in a safe, happy environment where they can thrive.

The school’s exceptional teaching staff, led by Rydal Penrhos’ Senior Leadership Team, provide a balanced learning programme that caters to a wide range of abilities and interests. We care for the individual and are able to tailor the curriculum to suit diverse needs.

Our curriculum also allows for increased choice and specialisation as pupils move through the school, which is constantly monitored by staff to ensure our pupils reach and exceed their goals consistently.

This not only brings exceptional examination results at A Level and GCSE, but it also gives pupils the confidence to know they are flourishing through hard work and the opportunities available.

Inspiring creativity forms a big part of a successful education, something that was further highlighted within a special Year 7 and 8 textiles and art project centring on Mexican Hats under the expert guidance of teacher Suzy Morris.

The project involved studying the various differences between Mexican culture and the more traditional before pupils got to grips with skills such as weaving, embroidery, applique and applying felt by designing and creating their very own hats.

It was a project that provoked some fantastic discussion and outstanding final creations for the group, who proudly wore their new hats upon completion.

Another job well done from our enthusiastic pupils, who are constantly building key skills in and out of the classroom, broadening their horizons at every possible opportunity provided by our staff team.
