We will be hosting an information event about Sixth Form life, entry qualifications and what the school can offer our prospective Sixth Form students on Wednesday 4 February at 6pm in the Performing Arts Centre.
This event will be an opportunity for Year 11 students and their parents to come along to meet Mr Fowler (Head of Wellbeing), Mrs Breen (Head of Years 12 & 13) and other members of the school Senior Management Team. We will also be inviting some of our current Sixth Form to attend. This will be followed, at a later date, with a subject specific recruitment event.

We are delighted to announce that three of our students have been offered places at the University of Oxford.
Kyle Butcher has been offered a place at Magdalen College to study PPE – Philosophy, Politics and Economics (he needs to achieve two A grades at A level, having already gained an A grade in A level Religious Studies in Year 11).
Tuesday January 27th 2015 is an INSET day at Cwmcarn High School and there is no school for Years 7 to 10 and 12 to 13 on this day.
However, we will be running a GCSE targets and core subject day on this date for Year 11 learners only (between 8.40am and 2.30pm) and we would expect all Year 11 to attend. This will be followed by a Year 11 parents’ evening, beginning earlier than usual - at 2.30pm - and running until 5.30/6pm.
