The Language Centre

Pupils who intend to transfer to Penweddig may have an opportunity to attend a transitional language course held during Year 6 in the Language Centre which is situated in Penweddig. The course, which is usually held after the February half term and during the summer term, aims to give pupils additional help with their Welsh before they transfer to Penweddig. The number of places available is limited and sometimes pupils have to be selected according to their linguistic needs.

Two things are essential if a pupil of whatever background is to succeed, namely, keenness and commitment to learning the Welsh language and to make full use of it.

More than half of Penweddig’s pupils come from homes where little or no Welsh is spoken. Penweddig pupils’ examination results show that this not a hindrance to pupils’ achievements (see the enclosed booklet ‘Examination Results 2019’).
