A challenging and inspiring experience

“Find a group of people who challenge and inspire you, spend a lot of time with them, and it will change your life.”

It is my privilege to lead the Sixth Form Pastoral Team which has a wealth of experience and expertise in bringing out the best of our senior pupils.

Tutor groups are deliberately small and caring, meaning tutors can take the time to know their students, forging relationships that will challenge them to fulfil their ambitions.

UCAS and Futures specialists are ready to guide and support students in making decisions to continue further academic pursuit at excellent universities, embark upon competitive apprenticeships, begin purposeful gap years or enter the challenging world of work.

Whatever awaits, our Sixth Form remains part of the extended Rydal Penrhos community often returning to inspire future school leavers as members of our Alumni family.

“Individually we are one drop, together we are an ocean.”

Our Sixth Form knows they are lucky and as such, they work hard to represent the school as impeccable ambassadors giving back to us and the wider community their energy and enthusiasm.

The Sixth Form experience espouses an ethos of teamwork, leadership and service underpinned by a sense of intellectual curiosity.

Effective teacher/pupil ratios and bespoke pastoral care ensure that Rydal Penrhos students move forward ready and willing to contribute their skills to the wider world around them.
