Summer Term 2018


Welcome back to a new term at Ysgol Emrys ap Iwan.  We have had a lovely first week.  A member of staff came up to me at the end of the day on Friday and said how great the learners had been and what a positive atmosphere there was in the school -  It was great to hear.  We are very fortunate to work with the great learners that we do.  It made me think about the quote below


We will all be working hard this term to maintain a positive attitude so Ysgol Emrys ap Iwan is always a positive place to be.




 
 

Year 10
This week myself and Mr Williams attended the Year Ten assembly.  We have been preparing them for their examinations this term.  It is a really important time for the learners to make sure that there are well prepared for their final year.  I will be writing to all parents / carers this week so they are clear on how we will support their child at this crucial time.





Year 11
Year 11 continue to work hard in preparation for their examinations in summer.  We had a great turn out during the holidays to revision sessions and we will continue to do everything we can to help every young person achieve the qualifications that they deserve.



Skiing Trip

During the holidays we had a group of 40 learners go to Austria to take part in a week of skiing.  The learners were an absolute credit to the school and had a fantastic time.  It has been great talking to them this week.
I would like to thank all the staff who were involved in the trip for giving up their time and looking after the learners so well.  I would particularly like to thank Mr Blackford who organises this experience each year. 

The plans are in place for next years skiing trip to France and the letters are available!!


Sixth Form "Best ever results last year!"

We are still able to take application for our Sixth Form next year.  It has been great to see so many learners from year 11 express an interest in staying with us through to post 16.  We have also had a significant increase in external candidate wanting to join our school.
There is still time to apply for a place in our Sixth Form.  For external candidates please just download an application form from the website and return it to the school or email the school directly on info@emrysapiwan.conwy.sch.gov.uk requesting further information.  For candidates in school see Mr Seymour to discuss your options for Sixth Form.  We hope you found your recent interviews useful and we will be following up on these plans with you.
