School Description

Ysgol Gyfun Llangefni is a naturally bilingual community comprehensive school for pupils aged 11 to 18 years old, and it is maintained by Anglesey local authority. There are 761 pupils on roll, including 132 in the sixth form. Pupils come from the town of Llangefni and the surrounding villages and rural areas. Very few pupils travel from outside the school’s natural catchment area. Fifteen per cent of pupils live in the 20% most deprived areas in Wales. Thirteen point nine per cent (13.9%) of pupils are entitled to free school meals; this figure is below the national percentage of 17.7%. Approximately 68% of pupils come from homes in which Welsh is the main language, and 87% of pupils study Welsh as a first language. Courses are taught in both Welsh and English; however, the majority are taught through the medium of Welsh. Pupils at the school encompass the full range of ability. Sixteen per cent of pupils are on the school’s additional learning needs register, and approximately 2% have a statement of special educational needs. These figures are below the national figures. The current headteacher was appointed in 2013, following a short period as acting headteacher. Previously, he was deputy headteacher at the school. The senior leadership team includes a deputy headteacher and two assistant headteachers. The individual school budget per pupil for Ysgol Gyfun Llangefni in 2013-2014 is £4,514. The maximum per pupil in secondary schools in Anglesey is £5,155 and the minimum is £4,305. Ysgol Gyfun Llangefni is in third place of the five secondary schools in Anglesey in terms of the school budget per pupil.

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 (released annually in July).

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 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 last 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.

See Pupil heat maps FAQs for more information about the source of pupil heat map data.

BY PARENTS, FOR PARENTS

“Significantly improved”
AUTHOR:
"> 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.
