Welsh Language Award success


Robert Jones of Year 9, Guillaume Bigsby of Year 8 and Kayleigh Fisher of Year 7 were nominated for the Eryl Walsh Award, which is an award for pupils who show enthusiasm and commitment to learning Welsh as a second language.

The event took place on Wednesday July 9th in the Urdd centre which is situated in the Millennium Centre in Cardiff Bay. They participated in workshops and had an informal chat in Welsh with the judges. They chatted for a few minutes about a topic of their choice.

They then took part in the award ceremony in the evening. The judge could not praise our pupils enough, not only on their standard of Welsh but on their impeccable behaviour and wonderful personalities. They have been an absolute credit to the school. Llongyfarchiadau!

National Sports week


National Sports week took place between June 23rd- June 27th.  Year 7 pupils were encouraged to participate in as many sporting activities as they could throughout the week and write a diary of their efforts.  Lots of pupils did really well with some putting in over 20 hours of a sport a week! 

The following 8 pupils did the most sport over the week and are going to Boulders in September as a prize: Lauren Selman, Megan Lages, Rhys McGowan, Rory Skinner, Sophie Anderton, Maisy Gibbs, Reuben Jones and Yola Bailey.

During National sports week, pupils had the opportunity to try taster sessions in a number of sports that were linked to the Commonwealth Games.  Coaches were brought in for lazer shooting, tennis, table tennis and tag rugby and some pupils completed a triathlon but did rowing instead of swimming.

Paris Music Tour

The Music Department has returned from their triumphant concert tour of Paris. The five day experience included performances in the Jardins de Luxembourg, Square Jean XXIII and Disneyland Paris.


Pupils also visited Montmartre, Sacre Coeur, Notre Dame Cathedral and the Champs Elysees during the visit. The was a wonderful success and the standard of our pupils' performances drew high praise.

St Fagans Trip

Year 7 pupils enjoyed 2 rain free days on the 14th and 15th July learning about sustainable living in the past and present in the delightful settings of St Fagans. 

Pupils got to forage for bugs, defend themselves from olden day foes, study how sustainable our old houses and lifestyles were as well as enjoy team building activities with their form groups.
