Welcome to Llandrindod High School 

Expectations and aspirations are high here at Llandrindod High School. We are committed to developing the young people in our care, whatever their talents. Children of all abilities succeed at this school and are encouraged to develop academically, physically and spiritually, fulfilling their potential in a happy, caring environment.

As a parent myself, I am acutely aware of the increasing importance of education in today's world and the role that we, as teachers, have to play in developing our children so that they are fully equipped to make positive contributions to society. The staff at Llandrindod High School are extremely committed and dedicated to ensure that this is the case and I am personally determined to see all children flourish here.

I also value enormously the links between school and home, success being built on strong partnerships with parents and ourselves. My door is always open and prospective or existing parents are very welcome to visit the school; I look forward to meeting you.

MotherTongueOtherTongue-MFL

In May, Llandrindod High School pupils Daniel Binks, Emma Davies and Emyr Davies, Yr 9, entered the Mother Tongue Other Tongue Modern Foreign Languages poetry competition with Routes into Languages Cymru. The pupils each produced an original piece of poetry in French, the language they are studying at school, together with a short explanation of why they had chosen their theme and why they had decided to enter the competition.

 

Emyr Davies is the winner of the Other Tongue category Year 7-9. He was described as an outstanding young poet. Emyr’s poem will be published in a poetry booklet and will be launched on the European Day of Languages on September 26th which will also be a prize giving event for the winners. Daniel Binks’ and Emma Davies’ poems will also be included in the book; their work was described as fantastic. All three pupils have since opted to study French at GCSE.

“This is the first time pupils from our school have entered a Modern Foreign Languages competition such as this and I am extremely proud of their achievements.” Miss D. Hardwick, Head of French.
