Mrs Tracey Jarvis

Hello and welcome to Llanwern High School's first transition website. With current restrictions in place, this is a move we have made to try to ensure that you still have all of the information and detail you require when considering secondary school options for your child.

I am thrilled that you are thinking of Llanwern and I am sure that a thorough search around our website will go some way towards profiling all that we have on offer here at the school.

Not only do we have excellent facilities with our 3G pitches, dance studio, fitness suite, lecture theatre (and so much more) our staff and the support they give to our young people is second to none. At Llanwern wellbeing is a priority and the team who would support your child are experienced, caring and focused on the individual. Relationships are key and we work hard to build links with families so that we can work together to support our children to be the best that they can be.

We are an inclusive school. Not only do we cater for our most able with the number of A/A* grades achieved at GCSE at an all time high, we also ensure that more vulnerable learners are looked after too, with specialist teaching and provision in place to support, as required.

We also have an extensive range of extra-curricular clubs available, which include dance, debate, chess and gardening club, to name just a few. Widening experiences and ensuring that the school experience allows holistic development is important to us and we encourage the children to explore opportunities available to them outside of the classroom, which is supported with a growing calendar of trips and visits and engagement with such organisations as the Combined Cadet Force and Duke of Edinburgh - both of which are delivered on site.

Our academic success is borne out in our outcomes, with GCSE and A Level performance having significantly improved over the past three years. Whilst this is no denying that this is important, first and foremost we are a school community, with staff who are invested in what they do and determined to ensure that they do everything in their power to remove any barriers to wellbeing and progress so that every Llanwern student has the best experience of school they can.

Best wishes
