Prep providing a warm welcome for new pupils
January 14, 2022

Rydal Penrhos endeavours to make every new pupil a valued part of the school community from the moment they begin their journey.

We wanted to say how pleased and grateful we are for all your efforts with the children. They have settled in very well and it does feel as if they have been at Rydal Penrhos much longer. We have noticed a significant overall improvement since being at Rydal Penrhos and they are all really happy at school. The breadth and quality of activities are outstanding.” – New Prep parent

Starting a new school can be an exciting and often nervous experience. At Rydal Penrhos, our staff look to make the transition process as smooth as possible in pursuit of making pupils an immediate part of the school community with every possible support and guidance throughout the process and their time with us.

Our Admissions team provide all the information needed to ready pupils and their families with enrollment, which includes a personalised digital welcome pack with vital information such as timetables, key contacts and login details that can be easily accessed on any device.

“I really think you should be aware of how great these are. We’ve never had anything like this from any private school. They are so helpful, useful and valuable. It’s genius, thank you.” – New parent.

At Rydal Penrhos’ thriving Prep site from Pre-School to Year 6, new pupils become a member of their own class on the first day, with teaching staff having the immediate responsibility for pastoral care and monitoring the progress of all of the children in their class.

All new pupils are involved in an induction programme when they join the school. This includes guidance about school procedures and expectations and they will also be linked to their own “buddy” – a current pupil – that takes them through the early stages of day-to-day life across the school and provides an extra layer of support to assist with the settling-in period.

Pupils will also be assigned to a specific House. This immediately gives them a sense of belonging, with house pride forming a key component of Rydal Penrhos life and something staff and pupils take a great deal of pride in.

It’s the little things that make a big difference at Rydal Penrhos. This care and attention to every detail go a long way to ensure each child or young person gets the very most out of their education.

Staff go above and beyond the call of duty on a daily basis to help our pupils reach their potential. Something that has brought a considerable amount of success through exceptional examination results, high value-added scores and encouraging academic and extra-curricular development across every year group on a daily basis.
