When the original school was governed by the trust David Hughes left them with firm instructions as to the type of headmaster they were to employ:
"………….the schoolmaster shall be a single man, unmarried, and Master of Arts, at the least of the University of Oxford ………"
Today, the job description is slightly different!
The school serves the catchment area of south-east Anglesey - a mainly agricultural area with some light industry which is characteristic of the area. There are ten primary schools in our catchment area. The school has a policy which brings the school and the community closer together.
This is a bilingual comprehensive school with 1390 pupils aged between 11 and 18. More than twelve subjects are taught through the medium of Welsh to some pupils. Welsh medium courses are available from Years 7 to 13 and emphasis is placed on developing skills and linguistic ability in Welsh learners.
Pupils are given a broad education which includes elements of communication, numeracy, science, humanities, expressive arts, practical skills and technology.
The building has been extended since 1963 and we now have a Technology Block which gives the pupils an opportunity to develop skills and knowledge about technology which will enable them to take advantage of employment opportunities in these areas. Each subject uses aspects of information technology. The first year pupils have a unit to themselves where they are taught for most of the time. There is also a block for pupils in Year 12 and 13 which has a common room and a study. There is also an Information Centre (Library) available to all pupils.
Much emphasis is placed on extra-curricular activities.
On the pastoral side, the school is organised on a year basis with a head for each year but emphasis is placed on the role of class tutors and their part in the care and development of the pupils. A great deal of importance is placed on the close contact between the school and parents and we regularly meet in parents’ evenings. Parents are contacted personally should any problem arise concerning their child’s behaviour or development.
Please contact any member of the school's Senior Management Team if you have any questions you wish to ask or any matter you wish to discuss.
