This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the Pupil Level Annual School Census collected by the Welsh Government. The data tells us where pupils lived at the time of the last Pupil Census.

Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with siblings already at the school, high priority pupils and selective and/or religious admissions) but we may have removed statistical ‘outliers’ with more remote postcodes that do not reflect majority admissions.

For some schools, the heat map may be a useful indicator of the catchment area but our heat maps are not the same as catchment area maps. Catchment area maps, published by the school or local authority, are based on geographical admissions criteria and show actual cut-off distances and pre-defined catchment areas for a single admission year.

This information is provided as a guide only. The areas from which pupils are admitted to a school can change from year to year to reflect the number of siblings and pupils admitted under high priority admissions criteria.

3 steps to help parents gather catchment information for a school:

  1. Look at our school catchment area guide for more information on heat maps. They give a useful indicator of the general areas that admit pupils to the school. This visualisation is based on all attending pupils present at the time of the annual School Census.
  2. Use the link to the Local Authority Contact (above) to find catchment area information based on a single admission year. This is very important if you are considering applying to a school.
  3. On each school page, use the link to visit the school website and find information on individual school admissions criteria. Geographical criteria are only applied after pupils have been admitted on higher priority criteria such as Looked After Children, SEN, siblings, etc.

How School Guide Rates Secondary Schools

For secondary schools in Wales, schools are rated on key performance indicators for pupils up to the age of 16 (GCSE only) due to the fact the government did not publish A level data for the last academic year.

School Description

Ysgol Gyfun Llangefni provides care and well-being of the highest quality for its pupils so that they can succeed, whatever their needs. Staff succeed in creating a sense of family and know the pupils very well. Provision for additional learning needs (ALN) is a strength and pupils are given valuable opportunities that ensure progress academically and in their personal development. There are successful methods for dealing with a range of needs, particularly for pupils who find it difficult to cope with their emotions. Pupils show pride in being part of the school community. Many are ambitious and show a positive attitude, and persevere with their work. Although the school’s attendance has improved slightly this year, the attendance of pupils who are eligible for free school meals is too low. Most pupils behave in a civilised manner and move around the school site in an orderly manner. The quality of the buildings is deteriorating and they are in need of upgrading. A notable quality of the school is the close and supportive working relationship between teachers and their pupils. In the most effective lessons, teachers plan imaginatively to engage pupils’ interest. Teachers plan appropriately to develop pupils’ skills. As a result, many pupils speak well, are strong readers and write confidently. They develop their numeracy skills purposefully in a range of subjects. In a majority of cases, teachers give pupils useful written feedback. However, the quality of written feedback is too varied, which means that pupils do not always understand what they need to do to improve their work. Teachers work together effectively within the school, with primary schools and external agencies to provide a range of experiences for pupils. A notable element of this provision is the outdoor experiences and gardening lessons that are provided for pupils to develop subject skills and wider skills in contexts outside the classroom. The headteacher has a clear and ambitious vision based on creating an inclusive community school. He is passionate and ambitious for pupils, staff and the school’s wider community. By prioritising the well-being of pupils and staff and providing valuable support, leaders have developed a school with a supportive ethos and a caring and safe community. Based on their quality assurance work, leaders have a robust overview of strengths and areas for improvement in their areas and recommend useful actions for improvement. However, not enough attention is given to pupils’ standards and progress in quality assurance and self-evaluation processes. As a result, leaders do not identify weaknesses in pupils’ skills in enough detail to plan to improve them.

Average Parent Rating


“Significantly improved”

"> Since the new head started a few years ago, there have been some significant improvements in financial management and academic achievement and in particular the Maths Department is performing very well, with Science also beginning to make significant improvements. The school is definitely headed in the right direction and my children enjoy attending the school. Of course, it's not perfect, but I think the staff and senior team work hard to try and make it a good place to learn.
