October 2017

Hello again

A busy half-term draws to a close and, as always, there is much to reflect on and much to look forward to. 

I was extremely pleased last week to have had the opportunity to meet Year 7 parents who attended our Form Tutor Consultation Evening.  I hope that you got the information you needed about your child’s first few weeks in secondary school; it can be a tense time but we are delighted with the way in which Year 7 pupils have settled in to their new routine; many of them are taking full advantage of the opportunities our school can provide.

Headteacher Blog Update - September 2017

Hello again

I hope that you all had a relaxing and enjoyable summer (despite the weather!). 

This is always an exciting time for us in schools as we welcome year groups back and fully integrate Year 7 pupils into our school.  It has been a delight this week to see how well turned-out and how enthusiastic our pupils have been; I’m sure that the vast majority of them are as eager to learn as we are to teach and that they will do themselves and their families proud.

Welcome from our new headteacher

It is my pleasure and privilege to be able to introduce myself to you as the new headteacher of Aberdare Community School. This is my 27th year in education, my 6th school, my 2nd headship and I am extremely excited by the opportunity to lead the school into the next stage of its development. I am grateful to Mrs Sue Davies for the excellent foundations laid during her time as headteacher, foundations which I now look forward to building upon with the help of the excellent team of professionals we have working in this fantastic new school.
