Thank you for your interest in Penrhyn, the Preparatory Department of Strathearn School.
We value each child as an individual and our team of experienced and committed teachers provides a learning environment that is supportive, stimulating and challenging.
Through activities and learning opportunities that are purposeful and engaging, the girls are encouraged to become confident and motivated learners.
The curriculum is relevant, broad and balanced. from entry at P1, we emphasises the development of fundamental Literacy and Numeracy skills. Our aim is to build a secure foundation on which future learning can be based. the NI Curriculum has been integrated into our provision in manner best suited to our pupils.
Whilst excellence can readily be seen in the academic achievements or in sporting, musical, dramatic or artistic successes, it can also be attained in less easily defined areas, which are equally important to us. We value the contribution every pupil has to make and we strive to help each one develop her individual talents and personality, and to realise her full potential.
Through the provision of a range of appropriate curricular activities, as well as a wide range of extra-curricular activities, Penrhyn offers each pupil a school experience where self-esteem and self-confidence are fostered. pupils achievements, both inside and outside school, are nurtured and celebrated at class and at whole school level.
We work closely in partnership with parents. You are warmly invited to visit our school and I look forward to meeting you so that you can experience the happy family atmosphere that is so special and unique in Penrhyn.
