Welcome to our school

Hello, I’m Alice and I’m proud to be the current Head Girl here at Caereinion.

Following on from the legacy that Aggie left behind; pupil voice is of a huge importance and I aim to expand upon this. 

Looking back at my years as a student and all the opportunities I have received, I aim to encourage and help others to also have a positive High School experience.

A confident, approachable and social nature is the main attribute I bring to my role as Head Girl along with my ideas and plans for the coming year.


Head Girl

I'm Joseph and I’m delighted and honoured to have been nominated by my peers and teachers to be Head Boy of Llanfair Caereinion High School.

I have been studying here for six years and now entering my final year of A levels. I am studying English Literature, History and Psychology and want to go onto University to study Law.

Caereinion is a fantastic place to study in. We have a real community spirit and a family atmosphere. I started here in year 7, fairly timid and reserved but with a steely determination to really make a go of it. The amazing support I received by the teaching staff really made me believe I could become anything I want. I discovered new found confidence and a motivation to succeed, I made the most of revision sessions the school laid on and consequently achieved more than I ever thought was possible. I’ve met life long friends and my journey through the years at Caereinion has set me in good stead for a confident and independent kickstart into adulthood.

Over the next year I’m looking forward to helping the school forge new community relationships that will benefit our school. For me, the title of Head Boy shouldn't be just a status, this is my chance to make a difference and engage with all stakeholders to make Caereinion the first choice of where to send your children to study. My personal message to all current students is you should always strive to be the best you can, treat others the way you wish to be treated yourself and believe that no individual is too insignificant to make a difference.

If you see me out and around school, please take the time to say hello, nothing would please me more than to talk with you.

If you are a current or past student of the school or indeed a member of the wider community you would endorse my comment. This is indeed a fabulous school. Come and take a student led tour of the school and have a look at us in action.

One learner said “At other schools you are a number. At Caereinion you are a name!” Caereinion High School is a mixed, bilingual secondary school in Powys with over 500 learners accessing the only truly dual entry provision across the authority. It is the focal point of the local community and a key aspect in bringing together the many different community groups which exist in the area. The school is focused on the individual where we are small enough to care, but big enough to matter. The school plays a strategic role in the development of Welsh medium education across Powys.

During interviews for Senior Prefects, a 6th form learner concluded on how important the school is to the community by saying “I want my school to be more than the big building on the hill.” Indeed, we may not be at the geographical centre of the Valley, but we want to be at the heart of the community.

This year we have;

* Launched the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme

* Held a School Eisteddfod

* Entered a number of students into the Urdd Eisteddfod and several stage and category winners

* Won numerous sporting accolades at County and National Level


Join the movement towards a true bilingual education.
