A thriving learning initiative at Rydal Penrhos is set to begin again next week in a bid to continue its exceptional impact since its inception.
The school’s Academic Scholar sessions have become a huge hit with pupils across varying age groups, going from strength-to-strength under the leadership of English and Drama teacher Fiona Earle.
It offers those that have been awarded Academic Scholarships a chance to enhance their learning during their lunch break with half-hour booster session.
These take place across all departments throughout Rydal Penrhos, with the school’s dedicated teaching staff encouraged to choose a variety of different current and fun topics that are not found on the curriculum.
The first session of the academic year will take place on Tuesday, September 25, and will be held every week during term time thereafter.
Music teacher Richard Davies, together with other staff involved in the programme, outlined the plans for the current term and beyond at an Academic Scholar Parents’ Evening at the newly refurbished Sixth Form Ferguson Centre on Wednesday, September 12.
Deputy Head Tim Cashell, said: “Our Academic Scholar scheme is a fantastic additional learning experience for each pupil involved, and it has really caught their imagination thanks to our fantastic teaching staff, who put on imaginative sessions that encourage debate long after they have left the classroom.
“Hopefully this success will continue long into the future as Rydal Penrhos continues to assist each child and young adult under our care with different ways to maximise their learning experience.”
