OUR AIM IS TO GIVE EVERY PUPIL A FULL AND COMPREHENSIVE EDUCATION.

 

We encourage our pupils to participate in all aspects of school life. They are given the opportunity to develop their skills and confidence in many areas outside the classroom.

 

The school has established many interschool house activities. The pupils are split into four ‘houses’ -  Tŵr, Cybi, Porth and Penrhos,

Numerous competitions/ activities are held during the year eg Eisteddfod, Cross Country, Athletics, Sports Festival.

 

We support a variety of activities organised by Urdd Gobaith Cymru, different sporting, musical and drama events and we are delighted with our continued success in numerous and various competitions. During the first term, Year 7 visit the Urdd Camp at Glan Llyn.

 

Our public productions reflect the pupils’ talents across the Curriculum and underline the commitment and contribution of many Departments.

 

The Headteacher promotes experiential learning wherever possible and therefore supports fully Visits abroad and in the UK to give pupils the opportunity to widen their horizons. The Modern Languages Department takes annual trips to France for pupils considering GCSE French to practice their linguistic skills. The Headteacher has been involved in setting up a school in Zambia which provides a free education to over 800 pupils. Sixth form students have visited the school on numerous occasions.  Many other continental visits are organised by numerous departments.
