School Description

Ysgol Henry Richard is a bilingual 3-16 school that operates across three campuses. The school was established in September 2014 and is a result of a merger between Llanddewi Brefi and Tregaron primary schools and Ysgol Uwchradd Tregaron. Following a period as acting headteacher, the current headteacher was appointed to the post in September 2017. He is supported by an acting deputy headteacher and three assistant headteachers. The school is expected to be located on one site by September 2018. Pupils from other primary schools in the catchment area transfer to the secondary sector in Year 7, mainly from Rhoshelyg and Pontrhydfendigaid primary schools. There are 302 pupils on roll, namely 131 in the primary department and 171 in the secondary department. Nearly all pupils are of white ethnicity. Fifty-seven per cent (57%) come from Welsh-speaking homes and 88% of pupils are taught through the medium of Welsh. English is an additional language for a very few pupils. Seven point two per cent (7.2%) of pupils are eligible for free school meals, which is lower than the national average of 17% for secondary schools and 19% for primary schools. No pupils live in the 20% most deprived areas. Fifty-two per cent (52%) of pupils are on the additional learning needs (ALN) register, including 8% of pupils who are on School Action Plus. No pupils are statemented.

The core of this vision is to develop an ethos of close co-operation in order to provide rich educational experiences for pupils. The school is a close-knit, inclusive and Welsh community. Most pupils enjoy coming to school and enjoy the wide range of learning experiences and extra-curricular activities that are provided. Most teachers foster a strong and positive working relationship with pupils. As a result, nearly all pupils behave exceptionally well and treat their peers and others with respect and care. A majority of teachers plan their lessons in detail and provide appropriate opportunities, on the whole, for pupils to develop their subject skills. Overall, a majority of pupils make appropriate progress as they move through the school. In key stage 4, however, pupils’ achievement does not compare favourably with the performance of pupils in other similar schools over the last three years.

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 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.
