We are a Platinum Flag Eco school. The ‘Keep Wales Tidy’ committee assesses schools and we have been awarded the Platinum flag for the 5th year running. We started in 2008 and we have progressed starting from bronze, silver, gold and then platinum. The Agents of change have decided our eco target for 2023 is to reduce the amount of paper we use to save money and help the environment.  

Homework will soon be online to access. If you do not have an ICT device and would like a paper copy, please come and see a member of staff.  

Our inspection report has been published on our website. We are extremely proud of the outstanding report. Thank you for your continued support. Please visit  our school website and click on the orange tab: ‘Key Information’ then click on the heading ‘ Estyn’  or  ‘
