Basic Skills Quality Assurance
Our school has been awarded the Basic Skills Quality Standard in recognition of the outstanding work we do to support pupils in our basic skills target groups.
All these pupils are in mainstream classes, and the assessor was highly complimentary about the quality of interventions in literacy and numeracy deployed in the school. The assessormet many staff members and observed two lessons which were descried as outstanding.
Achieving this Standard is a real challenge, and has taken a huge amount of work and effort. Congratulations to all members of the Basic Skills team.

We are the 1st Welsh Secondary School to be re-accredited and granted this prestigious reward. Our assessor was extremely impressed and paid tribute to the quality of the work and the 'passion' for working with our families. Well Done CL, AR and all staff involved.
