Year 11 parents' evening will take place on Thursday 21st January 2016, between 3.30 and 6.30pm in the school canteen.
Dear parents and carers
As we are already well into the new year, I thought it only right to send you all our very best wishes for a happy, healthy and successful 2016 and to share some information about what is happening at Cwmcarn High School this half-term.
Before I do so, however, I would like to thanks parents and carers for all their efforts in ensuring that our young people are arriving promptly at school each day, properly equipped and ready to learn. Attendance overall is improved on this time last year and I am pleased to see that the vast majority of our pupils arrive daily in correct school uniform. Our official school uniform supplier is Darren Morgan Sports at Crosskeys, where all uniform items can be purchased for both boys and girls in Key Stages 3 and 4.
Leah-Marie Hill (of Pontywaun), former learner and Head Girl at Cwmcarn High School brings BBC Strictly Come Dancing celebrity Ian Waite to our community and delighted that she has chosen Cwmcarn High School as the venue to host the event.
Since leaving Cwmcarn High School 6th Form in July 2015, she has set up her own business teaching Dance FitSteps in the local area alongside studying a Degree at University to become a Primary School Teacher. Leah-Marie is a Qualified FitSteps Instructor, who has been trained by top dance coaches in London. She has had a successful dancing career having competed at National and International level, achieving UK and British Championship titles.

As a reward for positive behaviour year 7 enjoyed an end of term Christmas trip to Planet Ice in Cardiff.
A great time was had by all, the learners behaviour was excellent and many thanks to Mr. Robson and Mrs. Haines for organising the trip.
Enjoy the photos!
This year saw the inaugural Year 10 Welsh Baccalaureate Trade Fair. As part of their studies, the learners have to plan and promote a business so they all devised seasonal stalls. The learners were very innovative and worked really hard -we had a wide range of stalls including handmade Christmas cards, cakes, sweets, decorations, toiletries, spin the wheel, raffles and the ever popular sponge the teacher!
L-R = Jordan Davies, Chloe Bourne, Grace Hector, Millie Jeffries, Carys Turner, Lexy Thomas, Abbie Bourne.
The above girls achieved 5th position out of 15 schools in the Welsh Schools Novice Gymnastics Competition in November. They worked really hard in preparation for this competition with Mrs Haines and their Coach Georgia Haines (Year 13). The girls have been really committed in practising their routines and vaults after school and in completing their flexibility and condiditoning training at home. All the girls will also achieve a Bronze, Silver or Gold certificate relating to their individual scores on the day.
Well done girls!
