Welcome from the Headteacher

Welcome from the Headteacher


Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important things you will do. Most parents want a good education for their children but also want them to be happy and feel safe and secure.


At Ysgol Derwen we strongly believe that we can offer all these things and help your child be well prepared for life in secondary education and beyond.


We are very proud of the broad and balanced curriculum we are able to offer both within the Foundation Phase and in Key Stage 2 and the high levels of teaching and learning are a real credit to the hard work of both staff and pupils.


 We are also extremely proud of our stimulating working environment and the happy atmosphere of friendliness and cooperation which exists within the school.


Visitors to our school comment on the warm welcome they receive, and the behaviour and politeness of our pupils is recognized within the village and when they go further afield on educational visits.


We fully value the views of our pupils and they have a say in school matters through regular meetings and their active councils ( e.g. School Council / Eco Council / Healthy Schools / Digital Learners / Criw Cymraeg.)


We also fully appreciate the help and support given by our parents throughout the year. We are very fortunate to have an extremely active parent’s association (Friends Of Derwen School) who raise a lot of funds each year to enhance the curriculum and environment of the school.


If you do choose to send your child to Ysgol Derwen I am fully confident that your child will have an education which is both rewarding and fulfilling. Parents considering sending their children to the School are welcome to visit by arrangement with the Headteacher.


Yours sincerely,


Richard Jones
