Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Rydal Penrhos School is currently closed following government advice.
Our Prep School site is offering free childcare provision to keyworkers in the community. All calls made to the school are now being streamlined to the Prep site.
Please see the Coronavirus Information page located in the menu section of the site for the latest developments.
The Sixth Form curriculum at Rydal Penrhos School is formed in consultation with pupils applying to join us.
As far as possible, we shape our option blocks based on demand. We are fortunate to be able to offer an extensive range of A-level and Cambridge Technical courses, as well as the Extended Project Qualification. In addition we also support pupils through Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCS).
Sixth Form pupils’ academic progress is carefully monitored throughout both Years 12 and 13. Pupils work towards aspirational target grades and receive regular updates on their progress through the school reporting system.
In addition to preparing pupils thoroughly for examinations, departments offer a wide variety of opportunities to extend pupils beyond the formal curriculum including lectures, educational visits and enrichment clubs.
Pupils are guided through the university application process by a bespoke PSHE programme.
While offering guidance and advice on the key stages of the UCAS (or other) application process, the PSHE programme also provides guidance on a number of issues relevant to Sixth Form pupils, including study skills, alcohol, drugs, and mental health.
