Students at Llandrindod High School celebrated their A' Level results with the school improving on its record of last year with 87% A* to C.

Our students have performed really well this year and we are all extremely proud of them. So many have achieved their expectations which creates wonderful opportunities for their next steps in life. Most of our students have gained a place at the university of their choice. I would like to thank our staff for their commitment and the parents for their on-going support.
On behalf of the governors, teaching and support staff I wish all our students a bright and happy future.

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.
We would like to congratulate Ms. D. Hardwick on winning the title of Modern Foreign Languages, Teacher of the Year 2014 awarded by Routes into Languages.

Salters Chemistry Festival
Last week four pupils from year 9 from Llandrindod High School attended the Salters Festival of Chemistry at Aberystwyth University. Rasheda Kathun, Jess Harley, Jack Hughson and Jack Brown took part in the competition that was attended by 10 schools from as far north as Welshpool and as far south as St Davids. The purpose of the day is to allow students to experience the university environment and stimulate their interest in Chemistry. After a welcoming drink and cake it was quickly down to the first assignment in the fully appointed laboratory. The task was a forensic investigation where the students were assessed on the quality and accuracy of their work and the way they worked as a team. After lunch there was a second task and then prize giving. Our students gained a well-deserved 3rd place of which they should be very proud. Well done.
