Headteacher’s Welcome

Dear Parents

Ysgol John Bright is an exceptional school filled with young people who are gifted, inspiring, talented and caring. I hope this booklet gives you a taste of our vibrant and inclusive learning environment which I welcome you and your child to join.

Our inclusive curriculum is designed to both stretch the more able and talented and to support those who need additional help. We believe competence in a variety of traditional and 21st century skills is an essential outcome for all students. Our enrichment programme ensures that students have the opportunity to access a wide range of activities and clubs during their time at YJB. These opportunities, together with our dedicated staff and innovative curriculum enables students to get the most out of their school life and enjoy their time at Ysgol John Bright.

We pride ourselves on the excellent care, guidance and support we provide for our students, making sure that every child has the most appropriate, best quality pastoral and educational opportunities throughout their school lives. We believe it is important that all students can access a safe, supportive and inspirational community where learning is a positive experience, which will stay with them for the rest of their lives.

The recent success and achievement of the school can be directly attributed to the presence of a very supportive parent body, caring, forward thinking, dedicated and highly professional staff, energetic, thoughtful and determined students and a proactive and ambitious governing body. We work collaboratively with young people and their parents and carers to ensure that each student has the opportunity to achieve their full potential.

We are passionate about nurturing exceptional, independent thinkers who are happy and confident individuals. Whether it is opening minds through exciting opportunities or challenging students to be the best they can, we want our students to have the very best preparation for life.

We aim to create a supportive environment where everyone is valued for their contribution to the school, giving our students the confidence to learn and work as part of a community, collaborating with, and caring about, those around them.

If you would like more information, or to visit us at any time, please feel free to contact me.
