Rydal Penrhos has announced exciting new changes to its curriculum to provide younger members of the school with the best possible preparation for the remainder of their education and future job prospects.
The school’s Year 7, 8 and 9 pupils will see some gradual additions to their learning schedule, which will start at the beginning of the next academic year in September.
The changes come as a result of a review of the curriculum at Rydal Penrhos, which is part of the ongoing improvements in accordance with its Project Bold plan.
Computer Science and Welsh will be introduced more prominently as part of the curriculum, with Spanish also added to the Year 7 programme from September 2019.
French as a second language will also be added in Year 8 from 2020, and Swimming is also added to the compulsory curriculum in Years 7-9, with each pupil receiving one lesson per week.
Julian Barnes, Chair of Governors at Rydal Penrhos, said: “A review of the curriculum in the Senior School has also been completed and has included a detailed consideration of the wider curriculum and co-curricular activities.
“The major emphasis of this review has been on the impact it will have on the pupils. The focus is on subjects that are relevant and will provide future skills.”
