Welcome to Llanidloes High School

INTRODUCTION BY THE HEADTEACHER

I am delighted to welcome you to Llanidloes High school through our new website.

Llanidloes High School is an 11 to 18 age range, high achieving school and we take great pride in the care that we offer our pupils and the opportunities that are available for pupils to develop their sporting, cultural, social and lifelong learning skills.

Teaching and Learning is a priority in the school and this is reflected in the motto GOFAL which is short for ‘Giving Opportunities For All To Learn’. This is also a Welsh word which translates into CARE which is how we strive to be considered – a caring school where every learner is encouraged to achieve their potential.

 

 

If you are either a prospective parent or a new pupil, I hope that you will find this website useful. This however, is only a beginning. It is, of course, by participating in the progress of our school that you will fully appreciate the quality of education and experience that we offer.

Your child will mature into an adult during the years spent at High School. We recognise the significance of this process and strive to provide a safe, caring, structured environment in which pupils enjoy a happy and rewarding adolescence. Children flourish in an environment which provides safety, order, regular routines and a structured day.

We provide such an ordered framework, incorporating opportunities for creativity, growth and sporting excellence. To support pupils’ progress, a list of school rules is established and these are supported by our rewards and sanctions scheme. A special feature of the rewards scheme is the Year 11 Prom which is held annually and celebrates the five years that the pupils have spent with us.
 

At Llanidloes, we set high standards and expectations. We expect each pupil to work to the highest possible standard, to care for each other and to show courtesy to all. Parents, knowing that co-operation between home and school boosts children’s chances, are extremely supportive. We appreciate this and the co-operative atmosphere produced.

School uniform is a source of pride for our pupils – a list is included on the school uniform page. We are grateful for the excellent standards parents help us to achieve.

Every year, a Home-School agreement is sent out to pupils in Year 7 and parents are asked to read the agreement with their children, sign and return it to school. The purpose of the agreement is for the learner, parent and school to agree to common expectations and principles from all sides of the school partnership. The signed agreement lasts for the duration of your child’s time with us in school.

It may be helpful to attend our Open Evening, Sixth Form Open Evening, or simply to arrange a visit. We are happy to show visitors around the school at any time of day. Please contact the school office to make an appointment to visit us.

We look forward to your call.


Yours sincerely,

Darren Davies
Headteacher
