Caring for pupils at Llanidloes High School

We guide and advise our young people as they develop from primary pupils to the young adults of High School. Our Pastoral Care system is designed to assist with your child’s development and consists of Form Tutors and Year Leaders who are especially trained to mentor pupils of each age group. Specialists are available, if needed, to offer extra assistance to our in-school Pastoral Teams.

When your child is first welcomed to Llanidloes High School in Year 7, he or she will be placed in one of five tutor groups. Each tutor group is allocated to one of our houses; Ceiriog, Gwyn, Hafren, Idloes, Dulas and Trannon. The Houses compete in the School Eisteddfod and Sports Day. Your child’s welfare will be, in the first place, the responsibility of the form tutor, whom children meet daily at registration.

Pupils develop a close relationship with their tutors. Form tutors slot into a whole school framework of Pastoral Care with special responsibilities managed by the Year Leaders, Deputy Headteacher and Headteacher.

Tutors also deliver a Personal and Social Education programme to pupils. This covers many issues, ranging from “study skills”, “health and safety”, “citizenship” to “homework policy” and behaviour management topics such as “bullying”. We focus throughout on providing pupils with the necessary skills to develop both social and academic potential.

Democratically elected members of all year groups will be allowed to represent the views of their Year group in the School Council meetings which are held throughout the year. This is an important opportunity to participate in making suggestions to make school improvements.

Pupils are offered the chance to participate in caring and charitable activities including in Year 7 Readathon (sponsored book read). Money is also raised to sponsor children’s education in Kenya and Uganda and a direct link has been established with Mwamba High School to which we send soccer boots, second-hand texts and novels.

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.
