Ahead of the Rydal Penrhos Open Day on Saturday 8 October, we are featuring each key area of the school and the amazing opportunities on offer.
Rydal Penrhos is holding a special Open Day on Saturday 8 October, giving prospective pupils and their families a first-hand opportunity to see for themselves what goes on during a typical day at the school.
Those in attendance will get individual tours and speak with teaching and admissions staff to get a broader perspective of the day-to-day life of a pupil, the diverse curriculum and exceptional pastoral care.
Ahead of the showcase, this special feature series focuses on the key areas of Rydal Penrhos and the outstanding opportunities on offer. Our next instalment features the Senior School for Years 7-11.
Much has been written about what constitutes a good education. If we are not careful such attempts can be too focused and narrow that they ignore the diversity that exists in our community. Or they can be so bland and generic as to be meaningless.
Education must be rooted in a school’s values and principles but mindful of the fact that children have different needs, talents and interests. We pride ourselves on an exceptional academic education and thriving extra-curricular programme here at Rydal Penrhos, which allows each child to learn and develop in a happy and safe environment, receiving expert care and guidance from our teaching and support staff.
Our model of a distinctive, successful education aims to allow all our pupils to be individuals, to discover their talent, be the best they can be and ready themselves for the future while also being happy in the now
As one of the leading independent schools in the North West, richness, through a breadth of experiences and depth of study, is our goal. At Rydal Penrhos, you will find a broad and balanced learning programme which caters for 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. We strongly believe in developing the whole person. Whilst academic progress is our undoubted and committed priority, we also encourage our pupils to find out about themselves through challenge and endeavour.
This is structured through a comprehensive activity programme where vital life skills are developed such as team building, initiative, resourcefulness and self-help.
In addition to the outstanding academic and extra-curricular education provided here at Rydal Penrhos, we have also implemented a Pastoral system that is second-to-none and enables each child and young adult under our care to feel happy, safe and supported.
This enables them to get the very most of their time within the classroom, and we are always striving to maintain excellent standards in areas such as well-being and mental health.
Exceptional examination results are achieved consistently, but the ongoing progression of pupils on a daily basis under the guidance of the school’s outstanding staff team is the biggest testament of all regarding what a Rydal Penrhos education can accomplish.
