Welcome to Llanidloes High School


I am delighted to welcome you to Llanidloes High school through our 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 under parents. 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.

Examination Results 2015


We are again delighted with this year’s excellent set of A level results. Of the A levels taken 20% have resulted in A* or A grades. These qualifications will enable our students to either follow the courses of their choice in University or to pursue careers in other fields. They will be following in the successful footsteps of our past pupils, at least 10 of which have achieved first class honours degrees this summer.  
Our inspirational Head Girl, despite having a very serious illness, which resulted in her only being able to attend school for half her lessons, achieved a fantastic  A*A*A*and an A. Our Head Boy Matthew Jones achieved A*A A and a B. Other pupils who also had brilliant results were:- Emily Baldwin A*A A and a Distinction*. Evie Challinor with A* A B B. Emily Roberts A*A A A.
Our warmest congratulations go to them all; we wish all of our students every success in the future. I would like to thank the students, staff both teaching and non-teaching for their hard work and the parents for all of their support.


We are again delighted with this year’s excellent set of GCSE results. We have surpassed last year’s splendid results and are maintaining the high standards that we set in Llanidloes.
68% of students achieved at least 5 GCSE’s at grade C or above including English and Maths which is the most important statistic. 25% of the pupils have achieved 5 or more A* or A grades. Not one single pupil has left the school without at least 5 recognised qualifications A* to G. 
These qualifications will enabled our students to either follow the A level courses of their choice at school or to pursue careers in other fields. Our pupils have worked hard, being well supported by the staff and by their families. Every pupil deserves our warmest congratulations on their success.
Special praise must be given to the Maths department with 35% of pupils being awarded an outstanding A*or A grade, 85% of pupils achieved a C grade or above.
