All parents and carers are welcomed to the Friends of Rydal Penrhos School (FORPS). Rydal Penrhos School families are spread over a large area of North Wales and beyond. FORPS helps to foster good communication links between parents and staff at the school.
FORPS is committed to organising social events and activities to bring members of the community together at different times throughout the year. Events range from chocolate bingo and the summer fair, packed with stalls and activities for the children, to our annual black tie Christmas Ball. Funds raised through FORPS events are used to benefit all children within the school by providing extra items to further enhance the children’s learning /school experience. FORPS also raises money for charities and good causes, supporting Action for Children, Macmillan Cancer Support, Amnesty International and more.
