ASD Centre at Llanidloes High School

The North Powys ASD Resource Centre

Aspergers - Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

ASD centre

The ASD centre accepts learners from all over North Powys who have a diagnosis of Asperger’s Syndrome or High functioning Autism.

The ASD Centre’s main aim is to support adolescents with an ASD diagnosis during the transition from Primary School to High school and then to continue the support throughout their High School life.

The ASD Centre provides these learners with a safe environment and helps them organise their school day.

In the ASD Centre we have a firm intention that their integration will work. We maintain good communication with the families and we try to be flexible and resourceful. We provide an area where the learners can pass a safe and friendly break and lunchtime. It is also a place to which they can escape when things get too much. We adapt the school day for each individual, whenever necessary, to keep his or her stress levels down.

Other key strategies. We provide…

• A transition timetable
• A transition booklet
• Observation in the Primary School
• Additional visits to the High School
• Observation books 
• Support in lessons whenever necessary
• Social skills and Social Use of Language Program
• The possibility of completing homework in school
• Home School Books or e-mail contacts with parents
• A link between teachers and learners
• Individual Education Plans and Positive Handling
• Outreach to other schools in the catchment area
• Provide advice and training

The centre is staffed by a specialist teacher and learning support assistant.   It provides diagnosed ASD pupils with a dedicated base. Pupils with ASD attend nearly all their lessons and use the centre for social time and some homework support.  Currently there are 22 ASD pupils in the school including the sixth form.

Admission to the ASD centre is made through the normal school admission procedure and the Local Authority Specialist Centre Application Process.  We will assist and advise you with the Specialist Centre Application Process.

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.
