Rydal Penrhos Senior School’s subjects are split into different faculties. This enables each pupil to get the most out of their education and also gives them a faculty leader to go to for support and guidance.

Our faculty heads have a wealth of experience in their respective fields and further enhance the school’s rich and varied curriculum coupled with an exciting extra-curricular provision.

This gives every pupil a clear structure throughout their learning, ignite their interests and passions and maximise the benefits of a Rydal Penrhos education.
