Preparatory School pupils and staff closed out the academic year in style at an annual social event.

The school held its annual Leavers’ Lunch on Friday, July 7, where staff, parents, family members and pupils gathered together for one final meal before they headed off on their summer break.

The event marked the end at the Prep School for both the Year 6 group and Headmaster Roger McDuff, who is leaving his post after seven years at the helm.

Catering staff at the school put on a lavish buffet for those in attendance, who also included Senior School Headmaster Simon Smith, who will be taking a more prominent role at the site due to Mr McDuff’s departure.

Mr McDuff, said: “As always our catering staff did a phenomenal job of putting on an amazing spread for our Leavers’ Lunch, which is a fantastic way for us to thank each departing pupil and their families for all their hard work and support throughout their time with us at Rydal Penrhos.

“It was especially poignant for me as it was my final event before leaving the school, and the last few days have been very emotional and they are memories that I will cherish for a lifetime.

“Our Year 6 group have been a real credit to everyone here and we are confident that they are all going to flourish when the make the trip down the hill to Rydal Penrhos’ senior site, and I wish them the very best of luck.”
