Simon Smith highlights benefits of location as Snowdon site named best view in UK

Rydal Penrhos’ Headmaster Simon Smith has spoken of the benefits of location in an all-round education after a North Wales landmark was voted best view in the UK.

Snowdonia, the mountainous region which features the highest peak in Wales at 1,085 metres, was voted number one in a poll of more than 2,500 people to mark the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S8 smartphone.

The list ranged from prehistoric archaeological sites like Stonehenge to Victorian buildings in Westminster, and it was initially compiled by experts like the Rough Guides, Mr and Mrs Smith, Wanderlust and Good Housekeeping.

The Llyn Llydaw region of the mountains was the specific area that received the honour.

Mr Smith stated that Rydal Penrhos strives to ensure that its prime location – which is part of the school’s ‘Five L’ strategy – is utilised fully to give pupils a more enhanced learning experience that will

He said: “Parents often ask me what is distinctive about Rydal Penrhos and one of its unique features is certainly our location.

“Both the sea and Snowdonia provide our pupils with a healthy and inspiring environment to live, learn and be the best they can be.

“I'm not surprised that Snowdonia has been recognised by this poll and would encourage people to visit the area and see how we utilise its beauty and challenging terrain.”
