I would like to extend a very warm welcome to our new Year 7 intake. The first week Year 7 has encountered has been very positive and enjoyable, including many new experiences. All learners have started their new academic lives with their new Form Class and teaching group. It has been very pleasing to note so many happy and content learners during what has been a daunting experience. I hope the learners continue to embed the school’s culture and ethos into their everyday activities in school to become positive citizens within the wider community.
The following boys have been selected to represent the school in the County X Country Championships which commence this coming Friday. All learners are asked to complete and return a consent form by Friday at the latest.
Friday 12th September 2014 at King Henry School Abergavenny. Coach leaves school at 2.30PM and will return 6PM approximately. Parents will need to collect their child from the school site.
Mrs Peplinski welcomed the learners back to school today. She expressed her delight as the outstanding results from the learners and welcomed all the learners back to the school. The Head praised the learners for their excellent behaviour and appearance and extended a special welcome to Year 7.
Cwmcarn High School continues to thrive because of the exceptional staff and learners and the Head explained that:
‘The unique, supportive and caring culture here in the school is created by everyone. We must continue to respect each other and value our environment – manners and positivity are essential.’

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.
School uniform plays a valuable role in contributing to the culture and ethos of our school, setting an appropriate tone for learning. Uniform promotes positive behaviour, protects learners from peer pressure and establishes equality and belonging. It also teaches learners to comply with a dress code – an important workplace skill in later life. Perhaps most significantly, our uniform reflects our identity as a community and encourages learners to take pride in themselves and their school.
