What the school says...

Rydal Penrhos pupils have been learning and thriving in this beautiful corner of the UK for more than 130 years offering a breadth of education that is truly unique.
Today our ambition is for Rydal Penrhos to be the first choice day school in the North West and one of the UK’s most inspiring and admired co-educational schools offering education for girls and boys from 2 ½ to 18. On the edge of the Snowdonia National Park, looking out to sea and occupying a quiet corner of the coastal town of Colwyn Bay our Nursery, Prep and Senior Schools are perfectly placed to offer an inspirational learning environment.
Our aim is to be a vibrant and joyful ‘world class’ school. We firmly believe that a Rydal Penrhos education must be rooted in a school’s values and principles but mindful of the fact that children have different needs, talents (some known some not yet) and interests.
We are guided by our Christian Methodist founding values and provide a transformative experience for every pupil. Academic success, sporting triumphs, artistic and musical excellence and pupil wellbeing are the natural outcomes of this ethos.
