Digital welcome packs provide personal touch
January 20, 2021

Rydal Penrhos’ digital welcome packs provide new pupils and their families with a personal touch.

“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.

Starting a new school can be a nervous time for both pupils and their families. At Rydal Penrhos, we aim to make this somewhat daunting transition as smooth as it can possibly be.

This is evident from the first warm welcome for a socially distanced tour until they begin their journey with our school community. Rydal Penrhos’ admissions team are in constant dialogue with prospective families throughout the enrollment process, making them feel at ease and assisting them with anything they need.

Another element that has proven highly useful to incoming pupils and family members is Rydal Penrhos’ digital welcome packs, which are produced on the incredible Turtl platform and provide all the necessary information needed for a smooth transition into the school.

“Where Every Pupil Counts” is not just a catchy slogan for the school website and marketing material.

It’s something staff look to install every single day even in the most challenging of circumstances surrounding current lockdown measures due to COVID-19.

These welcome packs are personalised to the individual, with their email information, Show my Homework details, school timetable, classroom map and key contacts all available at the touch of a button for senior school pupils to utilise at their leisure.

A separate pack is also produced for senior school parents giving them essential details, and Prep School families also receive a digital welcome booklet that can also be downloaded into a PDF for a printed version if needed.

It’s the little things that make a big difference.

And it is all part of the service here at Rydal Penrhos.

This is the sort of care that goes a long way to ensuring each child or young person at Rydal Penrhos 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 examination success in recent years.

A strong commitment to helping pupils reach and exceed their initial goals is further reflected in terms of ‘value-added’ – which relates to attaining grades better than expected – with the school’s A Level pupils attaining a score of 0.5, which means for every ten subjects taken, five of them came out with higher grades than forecast.

It might not seem like much.

But opting for a personal welcome pack instead of a generic one for all has made a substantial difference.
