Croeso i Ysgol Uwchradd Islwyn / Welcome to Islwyn High School

Thank you for visiting our website.  Islwyn High School is a brand new 21st Century school in the county of Caerphilly that opened in September 2016.  I am delighted that you wish to find out about the school and hope that you find all the information that you require on this website.  If you don’t, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me personally.

Our vision is clear.  We intend to support and challenge every one of our pupils to achieve, and regularly surpass, their potential and we fully subscribe to our tagline:

Belong . . . Believe . . .  Achieve . . .

We have a brand new, multimillion pound, state-of-the-art building which will help us to fully realise our ambitions but everyone at Islwyn realises that a school is much more than its building.  It’s about creating a safe and healthy learning environment that has the right ethos to provide the best care, support and guidance for everyone.    

Please keep revisiting to see how our school evolves over its

first few years.                                          

Best wishes

Tim Williams, Headteacher
