Christmas is here!

I can think of no finer way to draw to an end my first Autumn Term in Aberdare Community School than to have had the pleasure and privilege of attending our annual carol concert.

Pupils of the Month - December 2017


Pupils of the Month – December 2017
Recently a group of computing MAT pupils took part in the UK Computational Thinking Challenge. Three of our pupils performed so well they have now progressed to the next round and been invited to participate in the TCS Oxford University Computing Challenge.
Only the top 10% of performing pupils across the whole of the UK progress to the next round, therefore, as you can imagine, this is a fantastic achievement for these pupils. The competition is split into 2 categories:
Senior - KS4
Junior - KS3
The following Pupils have been successful in reaching the next round:
Senior – Year 10 – Jack Jones
Junior – 8G1 – Jay Hayton and Seren Pugh
Congratulations all!

Attendance Matters


At Aberdare Community School we believe that excellent attendance and punctuality are fundamental in ensuring that children grow up with the correct work ethos for their future lives.

Children’s attendance is closely monitored by our Assistant Head-teacher, Mrs Emma Harris and the Family Engagement Officer, Mrs Sian Williams who are assisted by Mrs Debbie Allen in Years 10 & 11. They work closely with the local authority and RCT’s AWOs.

For your child to gain the greatest benefit from school, maximum attendance is necessary.

Easy Fund Raising

We are a school in the Cynon Valley with 1,350 pupils. With pressure on school budgets, this additional source of income will help the school to support pupils and supply resources that might otherwise not be purchased.
