A great languages day for our primary cluster schools on June 29th. Year 6 came to visit and had a fantastic time trying out French, Spanish, German and even Mandarin in the many language workshops. It was a great opportunity for the Year 10 French GCSE group to share their language skills, and along with Year 12 French and Yr 9 Language Ambassadors to guide the primary pupils though their language journey.
If you are worried about bullying this online tool from Childline helps children gives children some ideas about how to cope. One of the most important things to do is to tell someone – if we don’t know about it, we can’t stop it. However, it can be quite difficult to pluck up the courage to tell – this tool includes some really good tips on finding the right adult to talk to and how to plan what you want to say.
The governing body of Y Pant Comprehensive School has a vacancy for a parent governor and is looking for parents who are interested in this role. A parent governor is a person with parental responsibility for a pupil attending the school.
The role of governor is an important one, as governing bodies are responsible for undertaking a variety of functions connected with the effective running of the school, including curriculum, budgeting and staffing matters. You will be supported in these duties by other experienced members of the governing body, the headteacher and the Governor Support Officer.
The Authority will provide relevant support and information. Training is provided free of charge. New governors are encouraged to undertake the foundation course, held at local venues, within the first year of appointment.
The governing body works together as a group attending a minimum of three meetings per year. As a parent governor, you will normally hold office for a period of four years, even if your child leaves the school during this time. However, written resignations may be submitted at any time.
Becoming a governor is subject to certain regulations. Before completing the nomination form, please check that you are eligible by reading the criteria listed on the back page. The school’s Clerk to the Governing Body will acknowledge your nomination form in due course.
The Governing Body values your interest. We would welcome the opportunity to answer any queries you may have, about becoming a governor, by telephone, e-mail or face-to-face at school.
Please see the attached document for more details and a nomination form.
On Thursday 22nd June Y Pant opened its doors to the local community and hosted an Exhibition and Showcase of the creative work undertaken by its pupils. The evening was the brainchild of music teacher Marvin Thomas who said…
Central to the evening were the live performances. These included vocal soloists, DJ’s, rock bands, a ukulele group and performances from the cast of “Oliver!”, our school show which takes place on 10th and 11th July. The musical numbers took place all over the school including the canteen and the open courtyard which created a lovely atmosphere for the 200 or so visitors. In addition to these A-level Drama students performed short extracts from their exam pieces and A-level Media students revealed their exam show reels in the lecture theatre.
Whilst not being entertained, visitors enjoyed browsing the excellent Art exhibition in the covered courtyard, seeing cookery demonstrations, reading stories and poems, visiting the Learning Resource Centre and listening to pupils discuss their experience at the Hay Festival. Welsh Baccalaureate students presented their standpoints on global issues and the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award group talked about their experiences and sold raffle tickets to help fund their expeditions.
The raffle prizes were donated by local companies and members of staff – we’re very grateful for all donations. The raffle raised £196! The prizes were won by:

The DT department showcased some of the excellent projects students have undertaken this year and drew crowds with their 3D printing demonstration. Y Pant scientists discussed the design of the experiment for the NASA Mission Discovery competition and displayed their winning entry for the Royal Horticultural Society garden design competition and took visitors up to the rooftop classroom.
For many in the local community, this was an excellent opportunity to see our new £24 million building which the school moved into in January and which provided the perfect backdrop for such a creative evening.
Thanks very much to all the staff and pupils who worked hard all evening, and to everyone who came to visit.
