I, as Headteacher, on behalf of the staff and Governing Body am pleased to welcome you and your child as members of the school community of Ysgol Penrhyn New Broughton CP. I hope that we can work closely together so that your child will have a happy and successful time here.

I look forward to working with you to ensure that your child is able to learn and grow in a safe, happy and exciting environment. Our ethos is built around inclusion, making sure everybody has the opportunity to develop to their fullest potential. This is reflected in our school motto ‘Altogether we shine’.

Ysgol Penrhyn has been on an exciting journey of school improvement, and our progress has been acknowledged by Estyn in their Annual Report of 2012-13 which was a real honour, following a difficult period in 2011. The school has continued to strive to ensure that we offer a strong skills based curriculum, ensuring that all our pupils are fully equipped for later life.

I am immensely proud of our team at Ysgol Penrhyn who dedicate themselves in providing a high quality, nurturing education for all.

 Martin Matthias.
