Monday 4th June, message from Miss Brown, Deputy Headteacher
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome all of our staff and students back after a lovely week off. We are also excited to welcome Mr Andrew Brant our new headteacher who is looking forward to meeting all of our students and continuing the schools successful journey forward.
For Parents of Year 6 students joining us in September, you will have received your welcome letter with the arrangements for the transition days and the parent welcome evening being held on Wednesday 27th June in the school hall. The evening will be hosted by our new Headteacher Mr Andrew Brant and further transition information will be added to our Transition Page once finalised.
Our Y11 students have been working very hard and attending sessions after school revision sessions. A letter is being issued to Y11 students today outlining important information regarding the school Prom and home study arrangements. The GCSE Examinations commence on Tuesday 8th May and there are a number of pre exam briefings available to support your child. A copy of the letter is available under the Parents section of the school website.
Finally, on behalf of all staff I would like to wish all of our Y10 and Y11 students the best of luck in their exams.
At Ysgol Rhosnesni High School we are proud of the achievements of our students in a wide range of fields both academic and enrichment, and we believe in high standards and expectations. We believe that we can make a positive difference to the future life-chances of each and every young person.
We believe in working together with our students to develop their future roles as ambassadors of learning, citizens and workers and aim to equip them with the necessary skills, knowledge and understanding they will need for future adult life.
