Our new school launched in September 2018 with campuses in
Builth Wells and Llandrindod Wells.



Ysgol Calon Cymru.

It is a privilege to have been chosen to lead the school at the start of its journey. Opening a new school provides us with the opportunity to set the highest of standards from day one. I am determined to secure an outstanding future for the school and I make no excuses for the fact that my expectations and aspirations will be of the highest order for staff and students alike.

Achieving excellence does not happen overnight, and at Ysgol Calon Cymru we will seek to create a culture where resilience goes hand in hand with creativity, resulting in ambitious, capable learners who set themselves high standards and seek and enjoy challenge - learners that are enterprising and informed citizens, ready to play a full part in life and work.

I have a realistic and inclusive approach to education which is rooted in being a parent myself. I will bring empathy and understanding to the role, emphasising the importance of nurturing learners to help them develop the knowledge and skills they need for positive mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing so that they are healthy, confident individuals, ready to lead fulfilling lives as valued members of society.

As Headteacher, I will make it my duty to support our children and provide them with opportunities so that they can achieve the highest academic standards and develop their unique individual talents to the full. With a strong partnership between home and school, I believe that together, we can achieve this.

The importance of the family on children and their learning is crucial, therefore I will be seeking ways to actively involve you, as families and parents, in your children’s education as well as involving the community in the life of the school.

I believe that we will have a positive and successful future working, growing and developing together as a whole school community so that Ysgol Calon Cymru is a school that children love coming to and one which provides an all-round educational experience in which everyone can flourish.
