Rydal Penrhos Community

      Rydal Penrhos offers a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities; from chess and drama clubs to sailing and horse-riding. Our aim is to ensure there is something for everyone.

      Day pupils are encouraged to join the boarders’ Weekend Activities programme which offers cultural trips to historic towns and cities, adventurous experiences such as paintballing or surfing, and leisure outings including visits to shopping outlets, the cinema or football matches.

      The school recognises its unique position geographically and we encourage pupils to experience the opportunities available, for example in the Snowdonia National Park, on the sea in Colwyn Bay, or at the Etihad or Old Trafford football stadiums in Manchester. 

      In addition, there is a huge variety of clubs with which pupils can become involved, catering to all interests. The school runs musical, dramatic, dance, sporting, charitable, campaigning, debating and art and crafts societies, which are active throughout the academic year.
