Gwybodaeth Ysgol


We are particularly proud of our continued examination success, the range of opportunities we provide for all our learners and the way we help our learners grow into responsible and healthy adults.

The school is going from strength to strength, gaining many awards in recognition of our achievements. Our aims are not only supported by the work we do together but also by the accreditations and awards we hold, we are one of the first Confucius Classrooms in Wales, a centre of excellence for Young Enterprise and an active member of the connecting classrooms project (our link schools are in Cyprus and Malta). We also hold IIP accreditations for leadership and management, eco-schools bronze and silver awards and a phase four healthy schools award. This year we have been re-accredited with the Sports Wales Active Mark and were commended for our outstanding results in GCSE PE and the range and quality of the extra-curricular provision. We achieved the Leading Parent Partnership Award in January of this year and are very proud of a commitment to working together with parents and carers. These awards continue to help us to raise standards.

We have high expectations of our learners and our central aim is to enable each individual to succeed. We want them to be happy, healthy, aim high and be independent learners with an appreciation for lifelong learning. Everyone is valued for his or her own personal qualities and talents.

The staff and Governors are very proud of the progress the school has made over the past year. We are committed to a cycle of continuous improvement, relentless in our pursuit of ensuring that every pupil achieves their very best. Our 2016 results meant that there were no pupils leaving without a qualification and that over two-thirds left with 5+ GCSEs including English and maths. We truly believe that a GCSE based curriculum ensures quality outcomes and therefore our headline results include very few vocational or equivalent qualifications, again something that we are very proud of!

Our motto is ‘learning together, working together, succeeding together’. We work in partnership to ensure that when pupils move on from the Argoed High School they are self-motivated, confident and independent learners. Our work with parents and carers plays a very important part in developing our learners and we always welcome contact from you.

I wish all of our pupils a happy and productive time at the Argoed.
