Our School

March 2024

Can I start this month’s blog by wishing everyone a very happy Easter.  In what has been another very busy term, I hope that all of our pupils and staff have a relaxing break and that we are able to enjoy some spring weather!

A very large group of Year 7 pupils enjoyed a long weekend at the Llangrannog Urdd Centre in west Wales this month, and this was made up of lots of outdoor activities such as skiing, walking, quad bikes and archery, to name but a few.  All of this is combined with an immersive experience of the Welsh language.  I am grateful to the Welsh Department staff, and other staff across the school who supported this trip by giving up their weekend, and I know from the photographs and comments posted on ‘X’ that this was a fun and valuable experience for all involved.

At the other end of the age range in school, pupils in Years 10, 11, 12 and 13 have been busy completing work and revising in preparation for their external exams which start in May.  The lead up to the Easter holidays is always a time for completion of the ‘Non-Examined Assessments’ and there has been great support for this from students and staff alike.  There are also many after-school revision sessions going on in many subjects, and these have been very well attended by students.  We will continue to support students in their preparations for external examination in the next few months through a careful blend of academic support as well as wellbeing support.
