On behalf of the Governors, staff and students I would like to extend a very warm welcome to Ysgol Maesydderwen. We are a vibrant, caring and successful school, where the wellbeing, progress and achievement of all our learners is at the centre of everything we do.
It is my privilege to be Headteacher of Ysgol Maesydderwen where our dedicated team works hard to reach high standards in everything we do. This is further embedded through our successful relationships with parents, the local community and the other schools in the Ystradgynlais cluster.
We firmly believe that education is a partnership between home and school and we encourage parents to play an active role in the learning experience of their children. This embraces support for the school rules, high expectations of work, attendance and the willingness to monitor progress and achievement.
Every pupil at the school is seen as an individual and we respect and value these characteristics in order to encourage tolerance and understanding of each other. We aim to provide a positive, caring and safe environment in which students can grow and flourish.
The atmosphere within the school is stimulating, supportive, warm and friendly and encourages confidence, enthusiasm for learning and consideration for others. We have excellent facilities and offer a wide range of extra-curricular activities. These activities enrich a student’s experience and contribute to the learning process.
I hope that this website will give you as much information as possible about our school, the staff and the many activities that our children enjoy through our curriculum and our extra-curricular activities that you need. You are welcome to visit us at any time and see first-hand for yourself the excellent work within the school. If you wish to visit us, please contact the school to arrange a time. We look forward to meeting you.
