10th October 2016

Rydal Penrhos is offering two lucky pupils a fully funded day place scholarship for next year’s Sixth Form.

The school announced that the offer is open to any gifted pupils from the local area that are predicted to achieve A* and A grades at GCSE next summer.

The revelation comes ahead of Rydal Penrhos’ special Into the Sixth evening on Wednesday, October 12, where current and prospective pupils and their families can find out more about the school’s International Baccalaureate and A-level subjects on offer.

The offer is open to any talented pupil attending a state school in the North Wales area.

A number of Sixth Form scholarships are also available, including academic, art, music, drama and sport.

Hopefuls will be asked to attend special scholarship days in the coming months, with the Sixth Form scholarship day set for Saturday, November 19.

Acting head Roger McDuff, said: “This is a unique opportunity that we are offering here at Rydal Penrhos, which gives pupils from the region the chance to earn a fully funded place at our hugely successful Sixth Form.

“We had an enormous amount of success in terms of academic achievement in recent years, which is down to the first class education our pupils receive throughout their time here.

“I wish everyone applying the very best of luck in their efforts.”
