Remember, information about safe routes to school can be found on our Safe Routes to School page.
As we approach the summer holiday, there are a couple of points I would like to bring to your attention and ask for your co-operation:
The school has a Uniform Policy which can be viewed on the website. I would like to reiterate that:
- Pupils in Year 7-11 are not allowed to wear jeans, skinny trousers, leggings or tracksuit bottoms to school.
- Jewellery is not allowed in school however a watch and a single set of stud earrings are permitted. No facial piercings are allowed.
- We do not permit extremes of fashion in students’ hairstyles. Added hair colours must be natural and subtle. Hair braiding and patterns cut into hair or eyebrows are not acceptable.
If you are concerned about whether a particular item/style is suitable then you should contact the school for advice before buying or sending your child to school.
Attendance and Punctuality
Your assistance in ensuring that your children attend school regularly and are punctual are greatly appreciated. The Welsh Government target for attendance is 95%. School begins at 8.30 a.m. and the expectation is that pupils are at their classes by this time.
Once again, thank you for your continued support.

Deputy HeadteacherLetter to parents – July 19
Like all schools we do not provide parking for parents and want to encourage healthier ways for our pupils to get to school. Our pupils benefit from an agreement with local bus companies that they can use this provision with a YBB ticket and we have got ample, and well used, cycle and scooter storage on site. From this week we are also trialling a walking bus for lower school pupils and hope that this encourages as many parents and pupils as possible to think about the school journey.
Once final decisions have been agreed on future transport plans we will ensure we communicate this to all parents and carers. During this period we will not be issuing any parking passes as this is a central focus for changes.
