5 x 60 Club at Llanidloes High School

WHAT IS 5x60?
The 5x60 Project is a Sport Wales initiative and was launched in Llanidloes High School in September 2007 in response to challenges set by the Welsh Assembly Government. Its aim is to increase the number of secondary pupils taking part in extra curricular sport.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
The role of the 5 x 60 officer is to consult with the pupils, listen to their needs and identify the barriers which prevent them from participating in physical activity.  Following this, they timetable a programme of extra-curricular activities that suit the pupils’ needs.  These activities target the individuals who do not currently participate in any physical activity, or who are in danger of losing interest, and will compromise of traditional activities such as football and hockey, to recreational activities such as dance, aerobics and outdoor activities such as orienteering, kayaking and mountain biking.

GETTING INVOLVED...
PUPILS
Information about the 5x60 timetable can be found in the windows of the school gym and on the television screens dotted around school – this changes each term. An up-to-date timetable can also be found on the school website. If you have any suggestions for activities that you would like to see, please let Kate know.

VOLUNTEERS – PARENTS, 6th FORM PUPILS, WIDER COMMUNITY
The 5x60 project is heavily reliant on volunteers – roles include taking registers, organising festivals or tournaments, refereeing matches and leading sessions. Incentives are offered to those who contribute a number of hours to the project; from t-shirts and hoodies to extra training and qualifications, the possibilities are endless! For more information, please contact Kate Jones at school.

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.
