It is my pleasure as the Headteacher to welcome you to Ysgol Rhosnesni.
Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. We hope that you will find the information on the website useful and informative. Ysgol Rhosnesni High School is a mixed English-medium, 11-16 community comprehensive school situated in Wrexham in North East Wales. We work in collaboration with seven feeder primary schools on the east side of the town to provide a strong and varied programme of curriculum opportunities in preparation for a smooth transition between primary and secondary school.
At Ysgol Rhosnesni we believe in every individual student achieving their potential and we are committed to developing the enjoyment of learning as part of our caring, purposeful and supportive learning environment, where individual students matter and their well-being and success are important to us.
At the heart of our community is our commitment to ensuring that all students achieve their potential in an atmosphere of respect and challenge. To enable us to achieve this goal, we need the participation and commitment of our students and the support of their parents/guardians. My staff are committed to achieving the best and in 2014 we achieved the highest standard of results at KS4 in the schools history.
At Ysgol Rhosnesni High School we are proud of the achievements of our students 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 aim to promote traditional values and expectations with a focus on Respect, Honesty and Success together with an understanding and appreciation of the language and culture which is unique to Wales. We also endeavour to prepare our students for life in the 21st Century through curriculum initiatives, access to future technologies, extra curricular experiences, opportunities to learn in flexible learning environments and to support student voice.
We believe in working together with our students to develop their future roles as ambassadors of learning, respectful members of our community and hard workers and aim to equip them with the necessary skills, knowledge and understanding they will need for future adult life.
Please explore our website to find out more information about our school and its wider community.
If you require any further information about our school, please do not hesitate to contact the school to arrange an opportunity to visit Ysgol Rhosnesni or to talk to us about our school community.

Friday 4th May 2018, message from Miss Brown, Deputy Headteacher
I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a lovely bank holiday weekend. It has been a very busy term and our students have been involved in a range of exciting activities this term including a KS3 Maths Challenge organised by the Maths Department. In addition preparations are well underway for our Achievement Awards Evening at Glyndwr University on Thursday 12th July. Further information will follow.
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.
