Here is a copy of our most recent Estyn report conducted during the summer term of 2022. 

“Ysgol Uwchradd Glan Clwyd is a caring and inclusive community where pupils’ wellbeing is a key priority. Staff meet pupils’ emotional, health and social needs and provide them with clear guidance throughout their journey at the school.”

“The pupil’s voice has a prominent place in the community of Ysgol Uwchradd Glan Clwyd. The school council and various committees make very valuable contributions to the school’s work.”

“In key stage 4 and the sixth form, there is a wide range of interesting courses from which pupils can choose, including some that correspond to local industries. There is a very wide range of valuable extra-curricular experiences available for pupils to enrich their learning experiences further.”

“An excellent feature of the school’s work is the swift and successful progress made by pupils who transfer from English-medium education at a late stage in their Welsh language skills. They develop as confident speakers and produce extended written work, which enables them to join the mainstream early in their school life.”

“A notable strength within the school is the progress most pupils make in their advanced digital skills across the curriculum.”

“The school provides a broad curriculum that meets the needs of nearly all pupils, in addition to courses that reflect the requirements of local industries.”
