It is with great pleasure that I take this opportunity to introduce you to Ysgol Emrys ap Iwan. This is a school with high aspirations for the learners which the school serves, both in terms of their academic performance and their personal development. 

My staff and I want the best for your child.  This means the fulfilment of his or her academic potential and also the development of an individual able to play his or her part in society.  This is achieved by a balance of challenge and support for each individual learner.  This we will do in a strong partnership with parents/carers.

The school offers a purposeful and well-ordered learning environment, a progressive curriculum and high quality teaching and excellent facilities to support every learner's learning journey throughout the school.  Classroom learning is supported by a variety of additional activities and clubs, as well as our ever popular opportunities to learn away from the school, which encourage learners to take a wider, outward focus on their learning.  The school focus on sport, music and drama is an important feature of our work. 

All of our learners are prepared for rewarding personal and professional lives with the intellectual, personal and social qualities and skills needed to make a difference to the communities in which they live.  We want your child to develop the skills to be an independent learner who is able to demonstrate good literacy and numeracy skills whilst also being a creative problem solver and able to work effectively with others.  We know these are the skills learners need to be successful in the 21st Century and these are the skills our curriculum and teaching will develop in our learners.

The school already enjoys a national reputation in areas of its work and there is an absolute commitment to build on this year on year to ensure Ysgol Emrys ap Iwan  is the best school in Wales in all areas.  This is a journey for all of us and I would wish your child to be a part of an exciting on going transformation. 

In summary if you want your child to be given every opportunity to be his or her best, then please come and see us.  We can do this through a strong partnership with you at Ysgol Emrys ap Iwan.
