School Description

Wyclif Independent Christian School is an all-age co-educational independent day school operating from three sites in the village of Machen, near Caerphilly. The school was founded in 1982 and is a registered charity with a board of governors. The school is organised into three sections. The primary school is from kindergarten to Year 4, the middle school from Year 5 to Year 8, and the senior school from Year 9 to Year 13. The total number of pupils across the school is 133. There is little difference in the total number of boys and girls although this varies in particular year groups across the school. Many pupils travel from a wide catchment around Machen including from Newport, Cardiff, Pontypridd, Pontypool and Merthyr. Almost 30% of pupils are from minorityethnic backgrounds. Most pupils speak English as their first language. A very few pupils speak English as an additional language. No pupils speak Welsh as their first language. The school does not aim to make pupils bilingual in English and Welsh. The school identifies about 5% of pupils as having additional learning needs, including a very few with a statement of special educational needs. The school operates an open admissions policy and does not select by ability. The school was last inspected in 2012, when the current headteacher was in post. Wyclif is a Christian school that bases its educational philosophy on mainstream evangelical principles and concepts. The school aims ‘to enable each pupil to develop his or her own potential to the full as far as possible’.
