Welcome to Llanidloes High School

 
Message from the Headteacher and Governing Body:
It has been agreed by Llanidloes High School governors and Builth Wells High School governors that Ms Catrin Taylor will be seconded for two terms as Acting Headteacher at Builth Wells High School from January 1st 2018. Ms Taylor will work at Builth Wells high school site for four days a week and in Llanidloes High School for one day in order to continue her GCSE Welsh medium teaching commitment.
Mrs Jane Jerman will be Acting Deputy Headteacher during her secondment and there will be an internal appointment as Senior Leader (teaching and learning) to cover Ms Taylor’s senior leadership responsibilities for the two terms. Her A- level teaching will be covered by Ms Bryony Harrison, Head of Biology.
Parents can be assured that this change will not affect the quality of provision for your son/daughter but should you be concerned in any way please do not hesitate to contact me. 
Staff and pupils at the school know I have an open door policy and I have always tried to portray this to parents. To facilitate this further, I will be holding open sessions for parents on Wednesday evenings 4.00pm – 6.00pm commencing Wednesday 8th November. This will be a drop in (no appointment) session giving parents the opportunity for a brief meeting (maximum 10 mins if others are waiting) to raise issues that need my attention or to arrange a meeting at a later date if the subject requires more time.  Of course, if matters require more urgent attention then parents may ring the school and leave a message for me and I will endeavour to get back to you as soon as possible.
 
 
Llanidloes High School achieves School Categorisation 1A Green school status.

The National School Categorisation system gives us a clear and fair picture of how well our school is performing compared with other schools across Wales.
The system is based on three simple steps. It is not purely data-driven and takes into account the quality of leadership, teaching and learning in our schools.
Step one is the Standards group: a range of information is used to make a judgement about the school’s standards, resulting in a standards Group. Standards group 1 is the group that performs most strongly against the agreed measures.
Step two is Improvement capacity: an evaluation of the school’s capacity to improve further, taking account of the evidence about the standards and the quality of leadership, teaching and learning, resulting in an improvement capacity. Schools where the judgement is an A show the greatest capacity to improve along with the ability to support other schools.
Step three is the Support category: bringing the judgement on the standards group and improvement capacity together to decide on the school’s support category, colour coded either green, yellow, amber or red.
 
 
  Standards Group Improvement Capacity Support Category
2016 1 A Green
2015 1 C Amber
2014 2 B Yellow
 
 
 
INTRODUCTION BY THE HEADTEACHER

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.

 Llanidloes High School

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 2017

We are delighted and extremely proud that once again our students have achieved excellent exam results.

A Level: 100% of the year 13 cohort achieve the Level 3 threshold, which is the equivalent of 2 or more A*-E grades,  with 27% gaining 2 or more  A*- A,  94% achieved 2 or more A*-C grades (placing us top in Powys).  Worthy of particular note were 7 students who have 2 or more grade A*/A:  Ffion Williams with 4 A’s, Olivia Jones with 1A* and 3 A’s, Molly Hughes with A*, 2 A’s and B, Sioned Jones A*, 2A’s and C, Lauren Williams 2 A*, 1A, 1B, Amy Hill 2A’s, 1 Distinction*, 1C and William Richards with 2A’s, 2B’s.

There is no doubt that their hard work and dedication, together with the commitment of their teachers and parents who have supported them, has been justly rewarded with these outstanding results. 96% have been successful in gaining a place in their first choice university.


GCSE: We are proud to announce another set of excellent GCSE examination results at Llanidloes High School. Particularly pleasing was the 27.4% of pupils who achieved 5 or more A*-A grades which continues our improving trend from previous years.  English results, unlike the National picture, showed a significant improvement with 83.2% achieving A*- C  grades. 96% of the year group passed the newly graded Welsh Baccalaureate qualification.  76.8% gained level 2 and 67.4% the level 2 inclusive (at least 5 A*-C including English and Maths).

Congratulations go to the pupils who, supported by staff and parents, have put in tremendous effort to achieve results that they should be very proud of. I look forward to welcoming many back to our very successful sixth form, which achieved the best A*-C grades in Powys, and wish others every success in their future.  Thanks must go to the staff, parents, governors and the community who continue to support the school in continuing to provide excellent teaching and learning.
