Headteacher’s Blog January 2015

I’m pleased to be able to report an excellent set of results for the Year 11 pupils who sat their Maths GCSE in November.  The levels of success matched those we had at this point last year and they led to record Key Stage 4 results for the school.  Keep it up Year 11!

We have also had excellent news in respect of the Welsh Government’s new school categorisation system.  This is replacing the banding system which has been in place for the past few years.  Y Pant has been awarded Category 1A (Green) status, the highest category available.  Taking into consideration the last 3 years, Y Pant is one of only 8 schools which has always appeared in either Band 1 (2012-13) or Category Green (2014).  This is tremendous credit to the hard work of the pupils, my colleagues and to the support of everyone linked to the school.  Many thanks to all for their contribution to this success.

In a similar vein, Y Pant has been awarded Specialist Hub Centre status by the Central South Consortium.  This means that we will provide training and the sharing of expertise with other schools:  an exciting initiative which we look forward to supporting.

Many thanks to all parents who attended our Year 9 Options Evening last night.  These are complicated times for pupils entering into Key Stage 4 and I hope that the information provided last night will have helped make this important decision  a bit less daunting.  Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you have any further questions.

Congratulations to Mr Owen Thomas on the opening of his new play ‘Grav’.  It sounds fantastic and I am looking forward to seeing it.  It’s great for the school to have a professional playwright as our Head of Performing Arts.  I am also pleased to report that we will be returning to the Muni later this year for our next major production.  Auditions have been taking place throughout this week and I am told that the standard is incredibly high.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Year 11 pupils admired by the Dutch for their style!

Back in September, Jessica  and Maria  (both in Year 11) represented Y Pant on the Comenius Conference in Holland.
Whilst visiting Rotterdam, Jess and Maria were approached by a famous Dutch magazine because of their cool style!  They were asked about where they liked to shop and who their style influences were.  Their pictures were published in the Dutch magazine recently and all their Dutch friends are now very jealous!
