Armed Forces Friendly School Award

Our Armed Forces Children and Young People have been working closely with SSCE Cymru to ensure that at Llanwern we recognise and support our Armed Forces Families.  

We are proud to announce that we are now the first Secondary School in Newport, and the whole of Gwent, to be awarded Bronze Status in the Armed Forces Friendly Schools Award.  

We are very excited about this opportunity and are looking forward to developing the support available for Armed Forces Children and Young People here at Llanwern.

We also received congratulations from the Education Minister and the Head of the Army in Wales! 


“Congratulations on attaining Armed Forces Friendly Schools Cymru status.  I am very proud of the support schools in Wales are giving to the children of our Armed Forces. I want all children and young people to be supported to achieve their best. It is right that we recognise and celebrate your achievements.”

Jeremy Miles MS, Education Minister, Welsh Government


 “On behalf of the extended military community based or settled in Wales, can I thank you for the dedicated educational experience and support you provide our children. The awarding of this special recognition as a Forces Friendly School is our way of saying thank you for your professional dedication and we very much appreciate everything you do for us.”

Brigadier Nicholas Thomas, Head of the Army in Wales
