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

Memorial Bench

On Friday the 11th of November, the school held their annual last post at 11 o clock in memory of those who lost their lives at war. We thought this was an appropriate day to unveil a new memorial bench which has been designed by Design and Technology students at Llanfyllin High School on behalf of the town council. In the photos are year 7 students at Llanfyllin High school who took part in the competition and Mrs Ann Williams from Llanfyllin Town Council.


On the morning of the ninth of November the A level students at Llanfyllin High School were delighted to meet Ray Hall and Jules Rogers who own and run Newborn Whispers, a very personal and friendly local newborn photography business, based at their Llanfyllin studio. The students were shown a range of Newborn Art Photography as produced for Newborn Whispers clients. Jules and Ray shared their knowledge, explaining how to work successfully in a photography business. Students were advised on safety, marketing, equipment and the reality of being a professional photographer. The talk was enlightening and informative. I was very impressed by Ray's technical understanding of Adobe Photoshop.

The talk was very detailed and professional. In addition to Newborn Whispers, Ray and Jules also discussed their Passion4tography brand, which offers many photography related training courses as well as a range of general photography services including portraiture, family shoots, pet, equine, and commercial photography. Students were shown a wide variety of creative images styles from HDR, landscapes, event and macro photography. If you would like to know more about the work they do please see the links below. Very kindly Jules and Ray agreed to forge further links with Dan Breakwell Griffiths and Becky Steer to help aid them in their photographic careers.

Students will use the workshop to include in their coursework for their A Level qualification. It is vital that students demonstrate personal connections with the work of other artists and the opportunity to ask questions and interact with Jules and Ray was invaluable.

I am now looking forward to seeing how the students respond from the visit.

I would also like to express my gratitude to them both for taking time out of their busy work schedules to enlighten and educate us all. It was an exciting display of stunning images.
