A Headteacher's Welcome

Dear Parent/Carer,

Choosing the best school for your child is a vitally important decision. Parents need to be sure that, in addition to a sound education, pupils will be cared for in a happy and safe environment. In this prospectus we offer you an insight into some of the opportunities available to your children at Islwyn High School.  We have a brand new 21st Century campus to help us achieve our ambitions but we fully acknowledge that a school is so much more than just a building.

We believe we can offer the opportunities and security children need to achieve their best. Everything that we do is driven by our commitment to provide your children with the highest standards of teaching and learning. In return we have very high expectations of student behaviour and their commitment to the learning process. Teachers lead by providing a mature example so that mutual respect and tolerance are the cornerstones of school life.

As a school we are very proud of the young people in our care and their excellent levels of attendance, academic and sporting successes and participation in a wide range of extra curricular activities. Staff are dedicated to helping each child achieve his or her full potential and to this end work tirelessly to promote the effective partnerships that have been forged amongst parents, teachers, children and the community we serve.  Our ambition is that all our students will fell that they belong at our school, believe that they can succeed with us and will ultimately achieve their full potential during their time with us.

I hope that you find our prospectus interesting and informative.  We are delighted to welcome visitors into our school, so if you would like to learn more about the life and work of Islwyn High School, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Yours faithfully,

 

Mr Jason Hicks BA (Hons) MA Ed
