Headteacher's Column

  • End of the 2019 academic year

    Dear Parents and Pupils

    As another busy year comes to an end, I would like to thank you for your dedication and support over the past year. We have again seen considerable changes to the school as we implement further developments towards meeting the requirements of the new curriculum and as we begin the work of formulating the school's vision for the future.

    We look forward to welcoming around 70% of year 11 pupils back to sixth form, the largest figure for several years. We are also implementing an options system for year 9 pupils and also ensuring that our learners continue to follow each of the six areas of learning and the experience of the new curriculum. We also continue to mature our curriculum in years 7 and 8 incorporating the six areas of learning and experience.

    We have had a new 3G pitch and we look forward to the second phase of developments where we will also have a new sports hall.

    The school is now financially stable and we are able to invest in staff development and refurbishment of the site, including being part of planning for major new buildings to meet the growth in pupil numbers including those returning to sixth form and the pupils joining us in year 7.

    It is anticipated that there will be nearly 1200 pupils at the school within the next five years. There is an exciting future ahead!

    However, I am sure that you are already aware that I will not be leading the school over the next year or two. I will be working on a 1-2 year secondment with the Welsh Government working with the Professional Learning Department to lead a project on developing resources to support teachers' professional development in preparation for the new curriculum.

    As a result, Miss Lisa Williams will lead the school as Acting Headteacher during this time, with the assistance of Mr Eilir Jones as acting Deputy Headteacher. I wish them all the best as they undertake their new duties from September onwards.

    I wish everyone a happy and safe summer holiday.

    Best wishes

    Mark Jones
