Rydal Penrhos Community
Open Days & Visits
      Our fantastic facilities and campus are located in a wonderful setting just a short walk from the beach in Colwyn Bay. The best way to get a real feel for our friendly and welcoming school is to come and see for yourself. Come to one of our regular Open events or arrange a personal visit; you are welcome to do both!

      To register for any of the events on this page please fill out the relevant booking form or contact:

      Senior School Admissions: Mrs Jenny Marsden  +44 (0)1492 530155

      Nursery and Prep Admissions: Mrs Susan Williams    +44 (0)1492 530381



      Both Prep and Senior sites will be welcoming prospective pupils and their families, giving them a first-hand opportunity to see for themselves what goes on during a typical day at the school.

      It will take place on Friday, October 4 from 2.30-5.30pm, so those in attendance can view both facilities should they wish.

      Among the highlights of the Open Afternoon will be individual tours of the school with pupil tour guides, and there will be a chance to speak with teaching and admissions staff, current parents and alumni to get a broader perspective of the day-to-day life of a pupil, the curriculum, pastoral care and what it is like to be a part of the school community.

      There will be a host of things to enjoy throughout the showcase, including lesson demonstrations from core academic departments such as English, Mathematics and Science.

      Staff and pupils will be taking part in classroom and outdoor activities as they would during a normal school day, which will include sessions in the Forest School and other facilities.

      The school’s thriving co-curricular provision will also be providing demonstrations throughout the event, with Music, Art and Design, Drama and Sport featuring prominently.

      Personal tours

      Personal tours offer the chance for families to make an individual appointment for a visit, to meet the Principal or Heads of School and have a tour of the school with a member of staff and pupil. You will also meet Jenny Marsden or Susan Williams from our Admissions Office, who will answer any questions you may have about applying for a place at Rydal Penrhos.

      To arrange a personal tour please contact Admissions.

      Taster days

      If your son or daughter enjoyed a recent Open Morning or visit to the school, we recommend they come on a taster day. He or she will be assigned a buddy for the day and will experience a full school day of lessons and activities, including lunch. Taster days can be arranged for all pupils from Nursery to Sixth Form. For applicants to the Nursery and Prep school, taster days are strongly recommended and give our staff the opportunity to meet your child.

      To arrange a taster day please contact Admissions.
