MISSION STATEMENT

Islwyn High School is a school where happy and healthy pupils are prepared by old fashioned standards and challenged through innovative teaching and learning experiences to create confident independent learners who will thrive in an ever changing world.

VISION STATEMENT


Islwyn High School is a happy and healthy school, where our efforts focus solely on making pupils feel safe and ready to embrace the whole school experience.  It is a school run on the principle of coupling innovative teaching with traditional standards of behaviour and commitment to achievement.  We develop a range of learning and personal skills in our pupils which enables them to think independently and enjoy learning.  We use the best of modern technology to underpin learning and aim to create a truly learning centred ethos which strives to nurture all pupils’ talents, whatever they may be.  


We are at the heart of the local community and at the centre of Caerphilly's education system, helping meet the distinct needs of learners with the support of all our stakeholders, especially parents.  Our school is dynamic and forward looking but is an environment that also remembers to enjoy the experience of today.  We aim to be a school with excellent features as recognised locally and nationally.  


We value good manners, respect and honesty and believe in the positive character that ALL people possess.  The school's stakeholders have a shared vision of the school and are united by our school purpose, the core of which is to continue to inspire learners, and equip them with the skills, confidence and qualifications required to thrive in an ever changing world.
