Congratulations to our Year 8 Football team who played Chepstow in the semi-final of the town cup. This was likely to be a closely fought encounter, but again Duffryn emerged victorious with a 4 – 2 victory. This time Callum Heard was the hatrick hero with top striker Mason Collins getting the 4th. Well done to all concerned.

Easter Tea Party

April 4, 2014 in Front Page News by Duffryn High School


Year 12 Welsh Baccalaureate students played host to the older residents of Duffryn and the Gaer last night at an Easter Tea Party. The students worked hard to prepare all of the refreshments themselves and decorated the hall with a spring-time theme.

I think that everyone involved agreed that the most enjoyable part of the evening was seeing the students and their guests talking and laughing together, showing that the generation gap was soon bridged by a cup of tea and a biscuit.
