Drama at Llanidloes High School

The Drama department at Llanidloes High School is always busy and there is plenty of opportunity for the pupils.

There is a School Production every year where pupils can audition for main parts and be involved with the chorus. Last year we staged Blood Brothers a very successful adaptation of Willy Russell’s play. Pupils worked together to perform for 3 nights to full audiences. This year the pupils performed another successful production of Charles Dickens’ ‘A Christmas Carol’ where both pupils and staff took part, along with brass bands and school choirs. The enthusiasm and efforts of the pupils involved was outstanding, producing strong and energetic performances.

     

If you would rather not be in the spotlight there is plenty of action behind the scenes! We need stage hands, a technical team involving lights and sound, scenery and prop building and finally costume!

A Drama club open to all pupils takes place in E3 every Thursday lunchtime at 1:15pm. It is run by the sixth form Drama pupils and has a wide variety of members. They experiment with a variety of techniques and Drama games to build confidence and make friends.

There is also the Drama sketch competition for the Eisteddfod, involving improvisation and extracts from various plays; competitions are held in the classroom and successful entries are put forward to compete with other finalists on stage. There is also an award for ‘The Most Promising Actor and Actress’ awarded every year to the pupils who have improved as performers. This year our winners were:

There is a great amount of success to be gained from the extra curricular opportunities for Drama. The pupils love to perform and are proud of what they have achieved together – so get involved!

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.
