Textiles/DT course for Year 7 produces outstanding work
October 14, 2021

Year 7 pupils at Rydal Penrhos are benefitting from a new course that centres on Textiles and Design Technology during the autumn term.

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 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, 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.

Another exciting addition to the provision offered is “Design Technology for Year 7 Textiles”, which has proven hugely popular, building core skills and enhancing creativity in the process.

One fine example of the work being done by Year 7 emerged from a recent project, where they created their own woven God’s Eyes in preparation for further weaving on a loom, felt making, sewing and much more.

This is part of their task to create and put together their very own South American hat. Something that’s brought plenty of enthusiasm, an eagerness to learn new skills and some outstanding creations that are a reflection of their development throughout the autumn term.

A huge well done to Year 7 for their incredible efforts so far. We are looking forward to seeing more of your work in the coming weeks.
