Penweddig Comprehensive School

Headteacher’s Welcome 

Penweddig was established in 1973 and is a Welsh community whose core values are based on mutual respect, honesty and concern for others.  The focus is on achieving each pupil’s potential and every effort is made to attain the highest standards of academic achievement for each individual.  These firm foundations enable the pupils to widen their horizons so that each one can become a responsible and active citizen.

Welsh is the language used in the daily life of the school and in the majority of lessons.  Sustaining a Welsh ethos within the school, the local community and beyond is a central part of the school’s work.

Another cornerstone of the school’s work and mission is the pupils’ moral, spiritual and physical development.  The school upholds the highest standards of behaviour and this is reflected in the pupils’ good behaviour over the years.  The school has clear and high expectations and the pupils and families recognize these and seek to support them.  Supporting the work of charitable and humanitarian causes is a prominent part of the work and tradition of Penweddig. 

On these solid foundations, the school prepares its young people to take their place in their communities, whether here in North Ceredigion or in the wider world.

Each individual is important in Penweddig.  Each pupil’s development as a rounded individual is the focus of the school’s work.

Changes to the school timetable

The School has changed our timetable so that years 7 and 8 have lunch between 12:00 and 12:50, and years 9-13 have lunch between 12:50-13:40. The advantages of the new arrangement are:

  • Pupils spend less time queuing for lunch
  • More opportunities for pupils to attend clubs and activities at lunchtime
  • More periods on the timetable to ensure less clashes for year 12 and 13 lessons

The timetable has already proven successful and we will be seeking pupils' views on the new arrangement at the end of term to see if we can improve it still further
