More than 72% of Rydal Penrhos School leavers went on to Higher Education in September 2011, studying subjects as diverse as medicine, economics, law, languages and fashion design; with a large proportion at Russell Group universities. Business, economics, management, marketing, accounting and finance courses remain the most popular areas that our pupils apply for.
Most of our pupils decide to apply to their chosen university once they have received their exam results, and take up their place in the September/October of that year. However, the school is also happy to advise on how to plan a gap year prior to commencing further study. We recognise the value of a properly planned gap year and encourage our pupils to take advantage of the huge range of opportunities available, enabling them to broaden their horizons and bring invaluable assets to their CV.
Rydal Penrhos pupils have accomplished great things after leaving the school, excelling in careers as diverse as law, medicine, business, acting, journalism and sport. We have a dedicated Rydal Penrhos Society, which helps to keep pupils in touch with one another and to support the school as a whole. Visit the Rydal Penrhos Society website
