Head Teachers Blog Pennaeth


A new term is well under way and Christmas seems in the distant past. As this is the first blog of the new year, I would like to wish you all a happy new year. I trust that 2018 will be a good year for you on a personal level and I sincerely hope that it will be a memorable and successful year for the school. We welcome Mr Derek Kelly as a new member of the Mathematics department and are also pleased to see Mrs Ceri Harris with us on some days. We look forward to her full return to work after the half term holiday.

Whilst year 11 had their mock exams before Christmas, it was year 12 and 13’s turn to sit internal examinations at the beginning of term. We also wish Year 10 well in their examinations. Year 11 received their mock examination results on Thursday, as well as some external examination results. We congratulate those who performed well and trust that those who were disappointed will use the disappointment in a constructive way.

At the beginning of term we look back at every form’s attendance for the previous term. The three forms with the highest attendance percentages for the last half term were:

1st = 7G 98.7% 2nd = 7C 98.2% 3rd = 9B 97.9%

They will be awarded early lunch passes. Congratulations! The new half term presents every form with a new opportunity to compete in the form attendance competition.


Year 11 Mock Exams

Due to school closure, we will have to amend the Year 11 mock exams. The timetable will be as follows:
Oherwydd i’r ysgol fod ar gau fe fydd yn rhaid diwygio amserlen y ffugbrofion. Bydd yr amserlen newydd fel a ganlyn:

Thursday/Dydd Iau – Mamiaith and Ailiaith (WelshCymraeg), Biology/Bioleg and Option 2 subjects/pynciau Opsiwn 2 ( DT/DaTh, History/Hanes, Music /Cerdd and Spanish/Sbaeneg)

Friday – the exams that were to be sat on Tuesday
Dydd Gwener – yr arholiadau a oedd i’w sefyll ar ddydd Mawrth

Tomorrow, Wednesday 13th December 2017

Oherwydd nad yw safle’r ysgol yn ddiogel, ni fydd yr ysgol ar agor yfory.

Due to the fact that the school site is still unsafe, the school will be closed tomorrow.

  • Diana Awards

        A group of Year 11 girls had an excellent day in Cardiff at the Diana Awards. The Oasis team were presented with Diana Champion Volunteers Group award for their commitment and considerable time and effort they have put into the Oasis project. The team support Year 7’s in the school by visiting classrooms to get to know the pupils, doing surveys, playing games and covering relevant issues such as bullying. They also put on activities such as dodgeball at  lunchtime to help them mix and settle into school. The team travelled by train to City Hall, Cardiff for the presentation and attended workshops on developing community projects in the afternoon. The awards were presented by the Lord Lieutenant for South Glamorgan with a special guest present – Owain Doull Welsh Olympic Gold Medal Track Cyclist.
