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

Friends of Llanfyllin High School

Dear Parents / Carers,

You are very welcome at the Friends of Llanfyllin High School meeting at 7pm on Thursday 11th May. We are hoping to see as many new faces as possible to get together to chat over coffee/tea about fundraising ideas for the school.

Friends of Llanfyllin High School is an exciting opportunity to help provide equipment and support to help make your child’s experience at Llanfyllin High School the most positive and successful possible.

We are not asking for money just your time and enthusiasm to share ideas and experiences, and hopefully get some events pencilled in on the calendar.

We look forward to seeing you then.

GCSEPod is now available at Llanfyllin High School! We have subscribed to the award-winning service to give your child access to thousands of hours of professionally produced, audio-visual content which will benefit them throughout the coming year.  

GCSEPod has over 4,000 teacher-written, audio-visual pods which have been produced specifically for learning, homework and revision. The Pods contain all the right facts, quotes, keywords, dates and annotated diagrams that your child needs for GCSE success. They won’t need to use GCSEPod for long to see the impact; in fact, consistent use of just 10 minute chunks is proven to support achievement whatever your child’s target grade is.

The GCSEPod website can be viewed on mobiles, tablets and PCs and the Pods can be downloaded for offline viewing. The Pods are mapped to the curriculum and students can access pre-set exam playlists which collate all the Pods relevant to a specific exam into a neatly organised list.  

Once your child has activated their account they can browse the Pod library and create their own playlists – just as they would when they’re listening to music. We recommend that you discuss GCSEPod with your son or daughter to ensure that they have successfully activated their accounts and encourage them to make use of this service throughout their GCSEs.

Once logged in, students can search for Pods by keyword, a specific exam or subject area.  

For more ways you can help support your child using GCSEPod, visit www.gcsepod.com/parents where you’ll find lots more information and resources. If you have any questions regarding GCSEPod please contact Mr Chris Gethin who is GCSEPod Lead for the school.

For specific technical advice please use the help pages on the website or contact us directly at the school.

We’re looking forward to helping your child get the best from this new resource!
