Pupils and staff on the Year 06 Residential Trip have departed and should arrive back at Y Pant School at approximately 2.30 p.m. this afternoon.
I am pleased to inform you that we have re-arranged a visit to Y Pant for Year 6 pupils on Friday 11th July, from 8.30am to 11.30am.
Unfortunately, it has to be a shortened visit due to other activities already planned for that day. However, pupils will have the opportunity to meet Form Tutors, tour the school and carry out some key administrative tasks.
Pupils should be brought to the school for an 8.30am start. We have arranged transport back to our partner primary schools. If your child comes from outside the partner primary schools, pupils would need to be collected at 11.30 from the main reception area.
Pupils currently attending Brynna Primary School are unable to come on Friday 11th July, as they have an existing school visit. We have arranged for them to come on Monday 14th July for a visit. Pupils should arrive at Y Pant at 8.30am and we will arrange for pupils to be returned to the Primary school at the end of the visit.
We look forward to seeing your children for this important transition visit.

As a consequence of this industrial action on 10th July, we regret that we will not be able to run our Year 6 taster day as planned. We are working with our primary colleagues to find alternative arrangements.
On Thursday 10th July members of the National Union of Teachers, UNISON, UNITE and GMB are proposing strike action.
A substantial number of support staff and significant minority of teaching staff will be on strike that day. As a consequence, it will be impossible to open the school to all pupils on this date.
Consequently, unless industrial action is withdrawn, the school will be closed to all pupils in Years 07-10 on the 10th July. Lessons for students in Year 12 will take place where relevant staff are not members of the NUT unions. Due to the closure of the canteen, please be advised that there will be no canteen facilities for those students in attendance.
Year 10 students are on work related learning next week. As part of their Welsh Baccalaureate qualification they are required to carry out 30 hours of work experience or work related education. Most of the provision for this will be carried out during the following dates:-
