School Description

Ysgol Syr Thomas Jones is a bilingual community school for pupils aged between 11 and 18, which is maintained by Anglesey local authority. There are 509 pupils on roll with 75 pupils in the sixth form. During the last inspection, there were 647 pupils on roll with 113 pupils in the sixth form. The school serves a catchment area of about 53 square miles to the north east from Traeth Coch on the east coast of Anglesey, through Brynteg, Llanerchymedd and Mynydd Mechell to Cemlyn Bay on the north west coast. Approximately 15.2% of pupils are eligible for free school meals, which is lower than the national figure of 16.4%. The school has 24% of pupils on its special educational needs register, which is higher than the national average. The percentage of pupils with a statement of special educational needs is 2%, which is also very close to the national average. A little over half of pupils come from homes where Welsh is spoken and 77% of pupils are fluent in Welsh. A very few pupils are from ethnic minority backgrounds. The headteacher has been in post since 2013. Following a recent reorganisation, the senior leadership team consists of the headteacher, two deputy headteachers and one assistant headteacher.

The headteacher and all staff convey a culture of “putting the child first at all times”. Most pupils’ behaviour is excellent and they are respectful and courteous to their teachers, and to visitors and their peers. Most persevere with their tasks successfully. Many pupils are natural and fluent speakers in both languages and these pupils’ literacy skills are strong. In general, many pupils make sound progress in many subjects. Effective leadership has led to robust standards of wellbeing and a high level of care and support for children. However, it has not ensured a consistently high level of quality in teaching.

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 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.

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