Rydal Penrhos Community
History
      When Rydal School and Penrhos College merged in 2000, the Old Penrhosian Association and the Old Rydalian Club amalgamated into the Rydal Penrhos Society, a new society for the former pupils of the two separate schools before the merger and the former pupils of the new school after the merger. The Rydal Penrhos Society, with a membership of approximately 5 000, is much larger than either the OR Club or the OP Association.

      The creation of the Rydal Penrhos Society was achieved surprisingly quickly and effectively thanks to the foresight and commitment of the committees of both the Old Penrhosian Association and the Old Rydalian Club. Special thanks were due to David Hackney OR, Ian Morris OR, Christine Brown OP and Midge Jeacock OP for enabling this to happen.
