Performing within a framework that provides a broad and balanced programme to develop physically, socially, emotionally and cognitively, and to encourage the development of personal qualities such as self-esteem, self-confidence, tolerance and empathy, supported by a team of dedicated staff, pupils of all ages and abilities take part in Physical Education, games and activities that offer a wide range of pursuits.

In maintaining a diverse and strong fixtures list in major games and other sports, we encourage and support team players and also promote those who aspire to compete at a higher level where possible.

We aim to achieve the highest possible standards so that pupils, whatever their ability, fulfil their potential.

Our proven record of athletic development has enabled a plethora of pupils to secure professional careers and international recognition within their respective fields, which comes as a direct result of the expert foundations they lay for their careers here at Rydal Penrhos School.


Our sporting facilties include sports hall, fitness suite, tennis courts, dance studio, squash courts, extensive sports fields, gymnasium, and a short game area for golf.

The impressive New Field facility hosts Rugby and Cricket fixtures during the year, with the school also boasting a new outdoor cricket nets, a multi-use games area and an astro turf big enough to host 11-a-side Hockey or Football matches.

Another exciting element to Rydal Penrhos’ sporting provision is our Swimming Pool, which has recently been refurbished ahead of the activity’s formal inclusion into the Prep and Senior School curriculum.
