Headteacher’s Word of Welcome

Ysgol Glan Clwyd is a school for 11-18 year old young people with a tradition of providing quality bilingual experiences and education for the young people of our community.

This was the first Welsh-medium secondary school in Wales and we are proud of developing Denbighshire’s 11-18 year old children and young people in becoming bilingual citizens. Pupils come to us from beautiful coastal areas in the North of the county and from idyllic countryside areas.

As a school we celebrate the wealth of accents and backgrounds which enriches our experience of Welsh variety all under one roof!

We are also very proud of our new buildings and facilities, which offers our pupils an excellent environment for twenty first century education.

Our main priority is to ensure the highest quality teaching and learning as what happens in the classrooms is the most important thing within a school.

We also offer a wide range of extra-curricular activities, whether it’s charity work, whole school performances, sports, musical experiences including Eisteddfodau as well as STEM events – and much more! Seeing pupils succeed in these diverse fields gives us great satisfaction.

In order for our pupils to be able to make the most of the experiences offered it is vital that they are happy and safe at school. This is at the heart of our day-to-day work and we are proud of the reputation we have as a school that offers excellent care for our pupils, by ensuring that personal attention.

Our aim is to create an environment in which every individual, whether a pupil or a teacher, a member of the pupil support team or the administrative staff displays ‘Respect and eagerness and a sense of belonging’ to the family of Ysgol Glan Clwyd.

We also appreciate our close relationship with our parents and guardians to help develop the lives of our young people. In such an atmosphere we believe that our pupils will flourish and will become informed, ambitious, ethical learners, healthy of body and mind – and truly bilingual.
