Dear Parents, Carers and Friends of Llanwern High School

As Chair of Governors I would like to inform you that Mr King is to step down from the post of Headteacher of Llanwern High School on 31st December 2017 to pursue other career opportunities. As Chair of Governors and on behalf of the Governing Body I would like to offer him my thanks for his hard work and contribution to Hartridge and then Llanwern High School and wish him all the best for the future. From the start of next term, there will be interim arrangements in place, with an acting headteacher, Mr J Wilson, joining the school. These interim arrangements will be for a maximum of two terms and recruitment for a permanent headteacher will take place early in the New Year.

I wish you all a very Happy New Year.

14.06.2017 Invictus Games Toronto 2017

Veteran Paul Harding joined the Army in 1976 and served for 12 years, rising to the rank of Sergeant. He is looking to compete in a mammoth six events at the 2017 Invictus Games: wheelchair basketball, wheelchair tennis, rowing, sitting volleyball, swimming and golf. Paul, who suffers psychologically as a result of his service, said: “Sport has given me a reason to engage with people again. I have spent so long isolated from everybody, but I am looking forward to Invictus and being around like-minded people again.” Paul has now joined the Cardiff Met Archers wheelchair basketball team, and is training hard with the Help for Heroes sports recovery team in South Wales, where he lives.  “Sport has also given me the opportunity to tell other veterans the benefits of engaging in sport. Help for Heroes is giving me excellent support, and I would like to be able to compete in more competitions to show being injured in service is not the end of your life”.  Paul works here at Llanwern High School with our Cadets.  We are so proud of Paul for undertaking this fantastic opportunity and wish him all the very best!

09.06.2017 School Paris Trip
Madame Williams accompanied by Miss Hyde, Mr Winship and Mr Beard took 32 pupils on the annual trip to Paris. The trip was a tremendous success this year with the pupils behaving impeccably at all times. The coach driver complimented them on their behaviour on the coach and how clean they kept it throughout the trip. The trip comprised of one day at the French theme park Parc Asterix; a cultural day that included a guided tour of the Stade de France (where pupils saw the changing rooms, jail, Presidents suite and were able to run out of the tunnel onto the side of the pitch), going to the top of the Eiffel Tower, a boat trip on the Seine, followed by a tour of the Monmartre area including the Sacre Coeur; one day at Euro Disney and finally shopping on the way home at Cite Europe.
All staff were proud of the pupils’ behaviour during the trip. The parents loved the fact that we posted photos regularly on Twitter so they could follow and see the great experience their children were having.
