To be the Best
Respect, Achievement, Care
To stimulate, support and nurture academic excellence through a caring and challenging environment.
At Ysgol Clywedog we aim to provide our young people with the spiritual, moral and social development needed to educate the whole person. Our focus is on the intellectual, emotional and physical needs of every student.
We strive to give all individuals every opportunity to gain success, experience achievement, understand responsibility and develop a sense of self-worth, confidence and discipline.
At Ysgol Clywedog we aim to work together in securing the best outcomes for every student. Learning is placed at the centre of everything we do and we are committed to empowering students to become:
- Successful learners who enjoy learning, achieve and make progress
- Enterprising and creative people who contribute fully to life and work
- Responsible citizens who make a positive contribution to society
- Confident and happy individuals who are able to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives.
We want a curriculum which is designed to stretch the more able and talented and to support those who need interventions or specific help. We believe competence in a variety of traditional and 21st century skills is an essential outcome for all students. Our enrichment curriculum needs to ensure that students have the opportunity to access a wide range of activities and clubs during their time here. These opportunities, together with our dedicated staff and innovative curriculum will enable students to get the most out of their school life and enjoy their time at Ysgol Clywedog.
We want excellent care, guidance and support provided for students and make sure that every child has the most appropriate and best quality educational opportunities throughout their school lives. We believe it is important that all students can access a safe, supportive and inspirational community where learning is a positive experience, which will stay with them for the rest of their lives.
We want a very supportive parent body, caring, forward thinking, dedicated and highly professional staff, energetic, thoughtful and determined students and a pro-active, ambitious governing body. We will work collaboratively with young people and their parents to ensure that each student has the opportunity to achieve their full potential and to enjoy their learning.
We want to be ambitious and pride ourselves on the culture of high expectations and high aspirations that is central to our ethos. We will expect every student to achieve their absolute best in their examinations and to involve themselves in the wider opportunities of school life.
We want every child to be encouraged from the start of their school life at Ysgol Clywedog to aim high and to believe that any future aspiration is possible.
