Message from the Head

Dear Prospective Parents and Friends,

It gives me great pleasure to present you with our latest School Prospectus as your child embarks upon their journey into secondary education.

Our school is unique in Llanelli. Ysgol y Strade is the only Welsh medium comprehensive school in the Llanelli area and it is the only school to have a Sixth Form; the seamless transition into post 16 education could be an important consideration when choosing a school for your child.

Substantial building work and redevelopment of existing facilities have taken place at the school site over the last three years. We are very proud of our modern new buildings and aim to ensure that our pupils have access to the very best facilities during their time in school.

We aim to ensure the highest standards for our pupils in every aspect of school life so that they are prepared for the challenges of the future. Every individual is important to us and our aim is allow the pupils in our care to excel, whatever their strengths may be.

We take pride in our long history of success, academic, sporting and extra-curricular. I hope that your child will benefit from, and contribute to the further success of the school during their time with us.

As well as having the information in this prospectus you can also arrange to visit the school to experience the friendly and happy atmosphere. Such a homely ethos provides a solid foundation to enable your child to fulfil their potential.

I look forward to meeting you and wish your child every success and happiness as a new member of our school.

If you have any queries, do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours sincerely,

Geoff Evans
