On behalf of the students, staff and governors I would like to welcome you to our school website.
We care for our students as individuals and want them to be happy in their environment. We want to foster in them a passion for learning and curiosity that will help them develop high aspirations, so they are motivated to reach their own goals. We recognise that strong self-esteem is essential in enabling our students to lead happy and successful futures when they move on to post 16 education and employment. Our goal is to ensure that our students leave us as confident, caring, happy and adaptable young people. We aim for them to be equipped with both good academic and social skills and an enthusiasm and passion to continue developing their learning in whichever path they choose.
We have recently reviewed our curriculum and developed it by making it more relevant, varied, engaging and interesting, to teach subjects in a more creative way. This will enable our students have every chance to succeed. We also want to celebrate their success, so regular rewarding and commending pupils has pride of place.
My experience has taught me that students flourish through genuine partnership between home and school. By working together as a team, we can share in the joy of helping your child to develop to their fullest potential, achieving success in all areas of school life. This year we are developing a ‘Friends of Rhydygors’ committee to raise funds for the school, which we can use for developing and maintaining the school site. All parents/carers are encouraged to join us in our new venture.
We aim for every student and those who care for them to look back and recall their place at Rhydygors as a time of achievement and hard work, but also of fun and friendships. A time during which they develop a thirst for knowledge and a passion for learning. I look forward to our next year, creating these memories together.
