Headteacher, Mr Mark Powell said, ‘This is a proud day for the school and every member of our school community. The fact that ESTYN has highlighted excellent practice in all of the key inspection areas is testament to the hard work and commitment of the staff and pupils of the school. This level of success has not been achieved overnight but is the product of many years of conscientious endeavour directed towards giving our pupils high-quality learning experiences which set them up for life. I would like to thank everybody connected to the school for their contribution to these inspection outcomes.’
