The second half of the summer term is now truly under way. Some of our Year 11 pupils have already finished their GCSE exams, whilst others have one or two examination papers to sit in the next couple of weeks. Year 12 pupils have also finished their AS examinations and are now back in lessons, beginning on their A2 courses. Examination-wise, it is now the turn of Year 10 pupils who are sitting some GCSE papers this week and we wish them every success. We also wish Year 13 well as they continue to face A level papers. A number of pupils from the school spent time at the Urdd National Eisteddfod in Builth Wells during the half term holiday. As a school we are very proud of the standard of their performances. The school performed in over twenty competitions – a most encouraging number. Congratulations are also due to Thomas Bowen, Year 10 on being the county golfing champion, for the fourth successive year. We are also very pleased of the achievements of a former pupil – Carrie Jones. Carrie has won a place in the Welsh senior women’s football team. We extend our very warm congratulations to her and wish her all the best in the future. At the beginning of last week, we welcomed our new Challenge Adviser to school. Mr Glyn Whiteford has just started working for Powys County Council and is replacing Mr Dan Owen, who left his role as Challenge Adviser to become Headteacher at Llanidloes High School. Mr Whiteford is a former Headteacher who has a wealth of experience and will continue to support and challenge us on our journey of continued improvement.
