Headteacher's Welcome

A very warm welcome to Ysgol Gyfun Gymunedol Penweddig‘s website. The school is a Welsh community that ensures that its pupils develop into responsible and active citizens who understand and respect others, whatever their backgrounds. We raise pupils' awareness of the culture, language and history of their area and country. We seek to extend their horizons to see global opportunities and bring ambition to every member of the school community - they are expected to aim high and work steadily towards their goals in order to develop and succeed.

Welsh is the language of the school and the medium of most lessons. Maintaining Welshness within the school, the local community and beyond is central to the work of the school. We work to support all pupils in their pursuit of the highest standards of academic, creative, cultural and vocational achievement. We support the moral, spiritual and physical development of our pupils in school and encourage pupils to contribute to their communities outside of school. All pupils have excellent opportunities to develop the skills and knowledge needed for a successful future. Each pupil is an individual with different aspirations and dreams - our role is to help them realize these.

On these firm foundations, the school prepares its young people for their place in their communities whether they are here in North Ceredigion or elsewhere in the world.
