Ysgol Henry Richard
Hello. The name is Dorian Pugh and I am Headteacher of Ysgol Henry Richard in Ceredigion since January 2016. This school providing teaching for 3 to 16-year-olds was established in 2014 with the merger of two primary schools and one secondary school and operated on 3 different sites. Finally, the doors to a single site school were opened in October 2018.
You are very welcome to get in touch if you would like a conversation on how we operate as an all-age school in a rural area.
Our motto “In work there’s profit” crystalizes our aim to ensure that every pupil reaches their potential through hard work and support from our committed Teachers. We are here to work together to create a happy and successful School of the highest standard. We expect the best possible standards from our pupils and we will do our utmost to give every opportunity and guidance to them. Within the school community, we strongly believe in acknowledging and celebrating pupils’ achievements whether they be academic, cultural or sports related and this support is shown on this website.
The School holds a very strong Welsh identity which reflects the area, pupils and families that it serves. Through the ‘Welsh Curriculum’ we, on a daily basis, promote the use of the Welsh language, history and cultural of Wales. Education through the medium of Welsh is offered in a wide range of our subjects.
We believe in working closely in partnership with Parents and outside agencies to enable the pupils to achieve their goals. We kindly ask that Parents to co-sign the School/Home Contract that formally acknowledges this partnership by noting the areas in which the school and home can collaborate.
Our vision is “To work together to create a successful school which makes sure that all pupils reach their full potential within a safe, challenging, supportive and friendly environment.”
