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.

We had some fantastic feedback for our open evening last night which we've been allowed to share. Thank you so much for these kind words and thank you to everyone that came along.
I attended, along with my 11 yr old son, your school open evening last night. Please express my thanks to all the staff involved. The whole experience was very upbeat, energetic and fairly informative. It’s great to come away with such a ‘feel good factor’ – particularly as Caereinion HS will be the most likely choice. My son is totally sold on science!
Can you pass on my congratulations to all the staff , sixformers and year 7/8 students involved in the open evening last night. I thought it was a lovely evening, promoted the school as a really friendly happy environment. The speeches were great, and the classroom activities were fun and enthusiastic, which was exactly what the kids needed to set them at ease, and get them excited about coming to the school. So, well done! It was good that our group going round was small, much smaller than other years, and Hywel did a great job of adding humor to the walkabout, which again helped the kids feel at ease. The teachers did great quizes and activities for the kids and it all went really well. Loved the pirates especially !

Totally agree with this. I put a post on my personal Facebook page saying what a fab evening it was. I came last year with my son who’s now in year 7 and we left feeling a little uncertain. My 10year however that came last night loved it and can’t wait to start. Well done all. I think the school listened and acted well on comments from the previous year x
