Large turnout for Rydal Penrhos' annual Open Morning
11th October 2016

Rydal Penrhos was a hive of activity last weekend as the school hosted its annual Open Morning.

Dozens of prospective pupils descended visited the school on Saturday, October 3, where they were given a warm welcome by staff and pupils alike.

During the four hour event there were plenty for visitors to see, including various demonstrations from different departments including drama, home economics and physical education.

Visitors also got the chance to hear a special speech from Headmaster elect Simon Smith, who spoke about Listening, Learning, and being the best you can be.

Mr Smith, said: “It was lovely to talk with so many families from near and far and to meet families who were here for the first time, or were having another look at the school or were Prep School families wishing to find out a bit more about life in the Senior School.

“I want to thank all our staff for supporting the event in a multitude of ways and showing the school in such a good light as a happy and purposeful place.

“More importantly I want to thank our pupils who were brilliant ambassadors for the school whether it was participating in an activity, playing music or accompanying a family around the campus.”

Following the tours, Mr Smith was also on hand to greet families at the Ferguson Centre, in addition to a host of other staff and pupils to answer any further questions that guests’ may have.

“Every family I spoke with at the end of the morning were fulsome in their praise of their tour guide. I hope that the morning as a whole strengthens families’ view of Rydal Penrhos as a school that both challenges, and can support, children to discover their talent and be the best they can be,” added Mr Smith.
