Welcome to the website

Welcome to our web site. I hope you find the contents helpful and informative.

Ysgol Maesydderwen is a small and inclusive school where pupils of all abilities are encouraged to succeed in a caring, orderly and supportive environment. The school uses an Assertive Discipline system where good behaviour is rewarded and students have clear boundaries. As a result, relationships between staff and pupils are a strength.

We are a fully comprehensive school which strives to ensure that all young people achieve their potential, regardless of ability. We expect the very best from all members of our learning community, and set high standards. In return we aim to provide excellent teaching, a broad and balanced curriculum and a range of exciting opportunities outside the classroom.

As an 11 – 18 school we can offer continuity for our students and welcome those who choose to join us from other schools. Many of our pupils prefer to stay within the ‘family’ of Ysgol Maesydderwen for their post-16 education where they know they will receive high quality teaching and excellent support in small classes. They also enjoy the camaraderie and excellent social life!

An education at Ysgol Maesydderwen not only aims to ensure academic success, but also encourages pupils to participate in a range of extra curricular activities. The school also has a strong tradition of charity work and voluntary work within our local community.

We realise that success is only possible by working in partnership with parents, organisations and key external agencies. Effective partnerships benefit our pupils and ensure that we are working at the heart of our local community.

The web site can only give you a flavour of the school. Ysgol Maesydderwen is a good school and you are welcome to visit to see that for yourself.
