  • 20.07.20 FOR THE ATTENTION OF YEAR 8 PARENTS AND PUPILS: SUMMER 2020 REPORTS
    SUMMER 2020 REPORTS
    Due to a problem with our computer systems, the data on the Year 8 reports is incorrect. We sincerely apologise for this error and will be reissuing the reports at the beginning of September. The reports you have received will not have any bearing or influence on the teaching classes of the pupils for Year 9.
    You will recall that there was an attainment report and a parents' evening in February (13-02-20), about 4 weeks before we closed due to Covid-19. Your child's attainment levels will, therefore, be almost identical to those at that time.
    Thank you for your patience and understanding.

  • 01.07.20 YEAR 11 and 13 RESULTS DAY
    Dear Year 11 and 13 pupils,
    We understand that the end of this academic year was difficult for you and we would now like to get your views and feelings about how you would like to receive your results in the summer. You have received an email from your Head of Progress and Wellbeing and there is a link in the message to an important questionnaire for you to complete.
    We are happy to open the school on results days, but obviously with the Covid-19 rules as they are, we will need to put in place an appointment system to do this.
    If you are able to complete the questionnaire as a starting point for us, then we will contact you with further information and instructions before August.
    Diolch yn fawr iawn

Headteacher's Column

  • Welcome from the Headteacher

    Dear parents, guardians and pupils,

    It is an honour to undertake the Headteacher role during Mr Mark Jones’ secondment to Welsh Government and we wish him every success.

    I would like to congratulate all learners on their achievements in this year's examinations. It was a privilege to be in school on A Level and GCSE results days to share the success and joy of our students. Their success is due to hard work and the support and dedication of a great team of staff at the school. We are also grateful for your key role as parents in the aspiration, discipline and success of our children. I look forward to building and developing our relationship over the year.

    My priority is to ensure the best for our pupils, staff and school and that we continue to improve in all aspects. We will continue to ensure the highest standards of education, care and support for our pupils and lead and encourage them to be ambitious, to make progress and to take advantage of every opportunity to realise their potential.

    With our dedicated and enthusiastic staff and creative, enterprising pupils, we will go from strength to strength and ensure continued success for all stakeholders of the school.

    Our pupils have one chance at education. It is an incredible privilege to be in a position to make a difference to them, to mold their future and, more than that, it is our duty to make the effort.

    I am convinced that I can rely on your continued support in this.

    At the beginning of the new year, I would draw your attention to some important events in the coming term:

    1) 16-09-19 – INSET – school closed to pupils
    2) 09-12-19 – INSET - school closed to pupils
    3) 03-10-19 – Yr 6 Open Evening 
    4) 24-10-19 – Yr 7 Welfare and Pastoral Evening
    5) 05-12-19 – Yr 9 Parents’ Evening
    6) 21-11-19 – Yr 11 Parents’ Evening
    7) 07-11-19 – Yr 12/13 Parents’ Evening

    Please refer to the school website our Facebook page and Twitter account for all other important dates and events.
