As Headteacher my mission is quite clear; to drive major improvements in every aspect of the school, and to raise standards.  We want Cwmbran High School to be the first choice for all parents when considering the next school in their child’s education, and I believe we can make rapid improvements in achieving this goal.

The foundations of an outstanding school are based on the values of honesty, integrity, loyalty, accountability, and fairness of actions and we are committed to developing ethical, confident, ambitious and creative learners, who will make a significant difference when they leave Cwmbran High School to fulfil their dreams and goals.

Our ambition is to develop the school into a valuable learning organisation where we commit to deliver high quality teaching experiences and promote independent learning.

Our expectation of all staff within Cwmbran High School is to challenge learners to be proud of what they achieve and for all pupils to display a passion for lifelong learning.  This is critical in moving our school forward.

Our vision continues to be inspiration of learning, creating an open culture, raising expectations and recognising and celebrating success.

To ensure our vision, our aim is to promote that everyone associated with Cwmbran High School shares the passion and belief that we can achieve and develop brilliant learners.
