Rydal Penrhos has announced a large-scale development programme.

Nursery, prep and senior sites are all set to be transformed at the North Wales independent school, with the school also investigating the possibility of opening a residential sixth form centre.

“In drawing these exciting plans together, the views of parents, staff and pupils have been most helpful in assisting our decision-making,” said the board of governors’ chairman, Julian Barnes.

He continued: “The plans are aimed at enhancing a school that is fully-equipped for many generations of Rydal Penrhos pupils to come, one which will enable us to continue to deliver our values.

“The Governing Body is committed to the delivery of these significant developments by lending its full support to the management team.”

A significant investment in the senior school will see upgraded science labs, fully refurbished classrooms and the installation of modern IT systems.

Art and drama suites will also be given a makeover.

Although plans are yet to be finalised, the Colwyn Bay school has also announced the construction of a new nursery and prep school.

Rydal Penrhos is also looking to improve its sports offer with “big plans” for the New Field area, an upgrade of the pavilion and the building of a second all-weather surface.
