What an Eventful Welsh Bacc Week!

Year 10 students have spent the week planning and preparing for their Welsh Baccalaureate Community Challenge. They have worked with a variety of external providers, business links and DHS staff who have provided interesting and varied workshops.

Our visitors included: Newport Live’s Community Sports team, The Rawffest Charity, Teenage Cancer Trust,

ABC Electrification, South Wales Fire Service and a visiting artist, Valerie Maidment.

The workshops were: Art, Cooking, Music in the Jampod, Drama, Garden Project and SNAG (Healthy Living).

 The students were amazing. Some spent time coaching Year 7s, others were fundraising and the Garden Project Team were planning and implementing some exciting changes to enhance the school grounds.

 A huge thank you to all staff and students for their hard work!

Diolch pawb!

Year 11 into 12 Taster Sessions

We are pleased that this year we are able to offer our Year 11 students the opportunity to participate in some ‘taster sessions’ of A level subjects running at Duffryn High School for the next academic year (2016-17).  These sessions will be running on Monday 27 June, Tuesday 28 June, Wednesday 29 June and Thursday 30 June.  I have enclosed a timetable for when these lessons will run and the classroom in which they are based. 

The taster sessions will apply to the following subjects; Maths, English Language, English Literature, BTEC Public Services, Finance, Business Studies, Art and Design, Chemistry, Biology, Applied Science, Religious Studies, Geography, History, BTEC Performing Arts, BTEC IT, BTEC Creative Media, and Music.  All level 3 courses.

This is an excellent opportunity for our students to see the standard of teaching and learning available in the Sixth Form and we would highly recommend that all students returning to us attend these.

Students attending the taster sessions are expected to attend in full school uniform including the appropriate footwear.
