Thank you for your continued support this Academic Year. The learners have responded superbly to their education back at Cwmcarn and 2013/14 has ended buoyantly, with a wealth of exciting activities and opportunities for the learners. School will close on Friday 18th July at 3:00pm.

As you will be aware, Cwmcarn High School prides itself on demanding high standards from learners across all year groups. A key aspect to maintaining and improving standards within a school setting is the general attitude and presentation of its learners, in both demeanour and appearance. We are therefore writing to clarify required uniform standards and basic expectations for the coming academic year.
The buses will start collecting learners from 10:00 am from their designated stops. Leaners are to wait responsibly for their buses observing the School Travel Code.
For our new September Year 7 learners school will start at 11am on the first day back not 9am. All learners are to go to the Performing Arts Centre.
Head of Year 7
Year 13 learners should attend the Performing Arts Centre on Thursday 14 August 2014 between 9.00 and 12.00 noon to collect their A level results. Learners who have applied to university should check their UCAS Track status before coming to school and should bring all their UCAS details (logs on etc).
The sixth form team look forward to seeing you on that date to celebrate and support you.
Year 8 have enjoyed studying food in French this half term so 8R took part in a french food tasting!
It was a lovely experience with learners loving the baguette, the paté and the chocolate spread but hating the French cheese, Brie! Croissants and pains au chocolat were also popular!
With the weather getting hotter and school summer holidays fast approaching, Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water is reminding young people of the dangers of swimming in reservoirs.
We want to warn people of the dangers of cold water and the hidden dangers that lurk beneath the surface at reservoirs.
Good luck to Eve Williams who’s competing in the SIAB Athletics International event on Saturday. Eve is running the 300m and 4x300m Relay. She's broken the Welsh Record twice and goes up against the best athletes from England, Scotland and Ireland.
GOOD LUCK EVE!
