Aspiration, Application, Achievement
On behalf of the staff, I would like to welcome you to Brynmawr Foundation School. We are a successful 11-16 community school. The school has existed for over 50 years and we are proud of the traditional values we combine with modern technology and approaches to teaching. There is a warm and welcoming ethos, which is a very important part of our identity.
A happy student will achieve their full potential, and Brynmawr Foundation School is all about creating the opportunity to succeed for every child. We set high academic standards, academically and socially. We want our students to become successful, confident and caring adults, able to take an active part in society.
We encourage our students to have high aspirations towards future careers; the quality of teaching and learning is very good and leads to excellent results for the students. There are also very high expectations of behaviour, creating a calm and happy school environment. Everyone is valued as an individual and there is a wide range of curricular choice, enabling talents and creativity to be identified and nurtured. This philosophy is summarised in our motto:
“Aspiration Application Achievement”
We are very proud of the warm relationships and the involvement of all students in some form of community or charitable service. We arrange a variety of outside activities to enrich learning, engage and motivate students.
It is a privilege engaging for me to lead this fantastic school. I am very proud of our imaginative pupils, dedicated staff, diligent governors and supportive parents.
New students and their parents are encouraged to look at our website and to arrange a visit to our school. This is the best way of really seeing what our school has to offer. I look forward to meeting you.
