Examination candidates at Rydal Penrhos are currently undertaking their mock exams in the newly renovated Osborn Hall.
This is an important time of year for our pupils embarking on GCSE and A Level examinations. Something that is recognised by Rydal Penrhos’ teaching staff, who are constantly monitoring, providing assistance and leading candidates through each stage of the process to ensure they are fully prepared for every challenge.
The school’s exceptional examination results in recent years are a strong reflection of a proven approach that focuses on the individual and assists in reaching their respective goals. Not only this, but incredible value-added scores further represent our pupils often far exceeding the marks expected consistently.
Maximise your potential – this is always the number one goal for our pupils at Rydal Penrhos and the school does everything we can to achieve it.
Year 11 pupils are currently participating in their mock examinations, which is another important milestone in their development. These are taking place in a new venue this year, with candidates benefitting from the spacious Osborn Hall as the examination venue for the first time.
Putting our pupils first remains the absolute priority of the exceptional education provided at Rydal Penrhos. With this in mind, the Grade II listed Osborn Hall is a perfect place for exams in the short and long term.
With its vaulted ceiling, stained glass windows and parquet flooring, this room is steeped in history and is an outstanding facility in term time for pupil debating, parent dinners and author visits among many other things. This welcoming environment with superior lighting is a tremendous space for pupils to feel relaxed and focused for examinations.
Rhian Williams, who is Assistant Principal, Director of Studies and Exams Officer at Rydal Penrhos, said: “The Osborn Hall is an incredible venue that we are keen to ensure is maximised throughout the academic year.
“Moving our examinations was, therefore, a logical choice and one that provides pupils with a spacious and more modern area with outstanding lighting to undertake their exams.
“This change has been well received by pupils during their mock examinations. It’s a room that will become the heartbeat for pupil-centred learning at Rydal Penrhos moving forward and is a tremendous asset we are fortunate to possess.”
