This week our students in Years 7,8 & 9 are sitting National Literacy and Numeracy Tests. Please ensure that students arrive promptly each tests will start during morning tutorial. Remember to arrive fully equipped - pen, pencil, ruler and rubber are essential for the tests. In addition, Thursday’s Reasoning Test requires students to bring a calculator.
As you may be aware, your child is due to sit a series of tests over the period 7th-9th May 2015. These are in accordance with the requirements set out by the Welsh Government and are aimed at assessing standards in Literacy and Numeracy. They will be similar to those sat last year and will give us an indication of individual progress…..

Over the Easter break, we have had 5 new water fountains installed around the school site.
We are aware of the research that promotes being well hydrated when learning.
“By the time thirst is felt, there may be a loss of up to 10% in cognitive functions and a reduction in the ability to learn.”
Dr Philippa Norman MD, MPH
We are therefore making water bottles available to all students in your house colours.
The water bottles cost £1 each and will be available from Student Reception from Monday 13th April onwards.
All the proceeds will go to the Student Council so they can re-invest the money to improve the school.
Thank you for your support
