                               CROESO I / WELCOME TO YSGOL EMRYS AP IWAN                      

Croeso, welcome.  It is with great pleasure that I take this opportunity to introduce you to Ysgol Emrys ap Iwan. 


We are a school with high aspirations for all learners both in terms of their academic performance and their personal development.


We want the best for all our learners.  This means the fulfilment of their academic potential and also the development of an individual able to play their part in society. This is achieved by a balance of challenge and support for each individual learner.


We offer a purposeful and well-ordered learning environment, a progressive curriculum, high quality teaching and excellent facilities. Classroom learning is supported by a variety of additional activities and clubs as well as our ever popular opportunities to learn away from school.


We are proud of our school.  We are on a journey to be the best we can be supported by our motto to ‘Dare to Achieve’ in all that we do.

Year 7 Initial Form Tutor/Parent Meeting

Although we are unable to hold our usual event here in school, there will be an opportunity for you to meet your child’s Form Tutor online to discuss how they have settled into the school. The Year 7 tutors will be available to have an appointment with you to give you an insight into how your child is settling in. We will notify you of the date of this when we return after half-term. Many thanks.
