Welcome to
Llanfyllin High School

At Llanfyllin High School our motto, Bid Ben Bid Bont, reflects our aspiration, through mutual support and challenge, to develop leadership in all. We aim to assist all our students to fulfil their individual potential, to find new talents and to develop a love for learning.

Through respect and tolerance we develop a personalised learning environment. Staff and students strive to ensure that no student is excluded or discriminated against. We offer an engaging curriculum and a wide range of learning opportunities that develop an independent ability to apply knowledge and skills. We aim to deliver inspirational teaching, based on evidence of what works.

Llanfyllin High School is a bilingual school.  Both Welsh and English play an important part in the life of the school and members of staff and students are encouraged to communicate bilingually in as many formal and informal situations as possible.

We have high expectations in terms of work, achievement and conduct. The ultimate aim is that all students become discerning and independent learners, possessing the skills required to take an active and successful role in their communities in the 21st century.

Mr Ll. Thomas, Acting Headteacher

Purchasing School Uniform

Llanfyllin High School are joining many other schools in providing online and in-shop purchasing of school uniform.  So from 27th February, after Half Term, school uniform will no longer be available to purchase from the School premises.  Instead uniform may be obtained either online, over the telephone or in person from School Shop Direct, Unit 13, 17-18 Sundorne Trade Park, Featherbed Lane, Shrewsbury, SY1 4NS and from the end of March school uniform may also be purchased online from Trutex Direct. 

We believe that the service from both suppliers will be both easy to use and convenient- when fully set up they will be able to offer more choice and will not have the stocking problems that we have had at the School. 

A new school uniform brochure will be provided by Trutex, who are the school’s supplier and who have committed to stocking our uniform; they will also provide sponsorship for our School Fund on each order placed.  The brochure will detail the price of uniform and the sizes that are available.  The prices at School Shop Direct are shown on their website and may vary very slightly from the Trutex Direct prices.  Non school uniform items as shown in the brochure will also be available to purchase from either outlet. 


We know that many parents prefer to order online, so this service will be available from both School Shop Direct and from Trutex Direct. 

To purchase from School Shop Direct you may visit their shop, telephone them on 01743 440449 or order online at www.schoolshopdirect.co.uk.

To purchase from Trutex Direct, log on to www.trutexdirect.com and at the password prompt type in LEA01001SC .  This will take you to the Llanfyllin School uniform page where you can see all items of our school uniform.  Alternatively you can order from Trutex Direct by phone by calling 01200 421206. 


Both outlets will deliver directly to your home or to a specified delivery address.  Delivery from School Shop Direct will cost £3.50 or will be free if delivered to the School address.  Delivery from Trutex will be free for orders over £50.

We believe that the new service will give parents more choice and a better service than that which the School have hitherto been able to provide.

Invoices For Out Of Area Transport Fees

Now that we have moved to their accounting and financial systems, Powys CC will be taking over the invoicing and collection of the School’s out of area transport fees.

In due course parents who pay these will therefore receive an invoice from Powys CC showing the 2017 Summer Term fees plus any outstanding balance owing from the Autumn 16 and Spring 17 bills already issued. This amount will have taken account of all monies paid to the School up to the end of February whether by Standing Order, cash, cheque or card, either as one off payments or as instalment payments as agreed with the School. If parents have made arrangements with the School for paying by instalments, these arrangements will cease at the end of February and parents will need to contact Powys CC if they wish to make new payment arrangements - see below.

The invoice will indicate how payment may be made which will include:

  • Payment by Direct Debit
  • Payment by Debit/Credit Card
  • Over the Internet (http://payments.powys.gov.uk)
  • Over the phone - either to an officer or via the automated telephone payment system.
  • Payment at a Post Office.
  • Payment at a Pay-Point outlet.

Whichever method parents choose, payment must reach the Council by the due date, which is 30 days from the issue date of the invoice. The Council actively encourages people to make immediate contact if they are having difficulty paying their invoices. Below, for parents’ information, is an extract from their policy covering non payment, late payment and making arrangements to pay. 

Please note that if parents have any queries about paying the invoice they must contact Powys CC, not the School – details will be available on the invoice. 

However, if parents believe that sums they have paid to the School have not been accounted for in the invoice, please raise this with the Business Manager, by telephoning the School or by emailing on nl@llanfyllin-hs.powys.sch.uk

The invoices for transport over the 2017/18 school year will be raised on a termly basis, as has been done before, so that parents will not be faced with one bill for the whole year.
