Our School

21st Century Modernisation

The school recently completed its moderisation project which has centred around the replacement of the existing Design and Technology (D&T) block and which have been replaced with a new two-storey building comprising D&T, Food Tech, Art and ICT rooms. The work forms part of the Welsh Government’s 21st Century Schools and Education Programme. 

Headteacher, Mrs Peers, said:

“This fantastic building will provide our school with the facilities to deliver effective 21st-century education at a time when it is most needed.”

Governing Body

The Headteacher and Governing Body have a clear vision for the improvement of the school and received a very positive report in October 2018 from GwE the Regional Inspection Service.
