Welcome to Llanidloes High School
At Llanidloes, we have a sixth form of around 110 students following a variety of schemes of study including the Welsh Baccalaureate, AS and Advanced level courses and Advanced Vocational GCE for those primarily interested in vocational studies. Very often students opt for a mixture and the experience which we have gained in providing these means that we can face the demands of the new curriculum with confidence.
<p>Students can choose to study subjects at Llanidloes in combination with courses at other schools and NPTC Group (formerly Coleg Powys) which means that they can access the full range of subjects offered locally. The options available at other institutions are listed on the back of the application form. ‘Travel time’ is built in to the timetable and Powys County Council organize the necessary transport.
<p>We regard the sixth form as a new beginning, when students can progress to the next stage of their education with greater maturity and commitment. Careful study of the prospectus is the first step to eventual success and we look forward to working with
you in achieving your aims should you attend Llanidloes Sixth Form.
<P>The aims of the Sixth Form are broadly the same as those of the lower school:
<LI>1. To create a caring environment where, as far as humanly possible, pupils enjoy a happy and rewarding experience.
<li>2. To value all pupils equally and educate each pupil to his or her maximum potential. This includes extending the more able pupils and giving special support to those who are in need.
<li>3. To offer pupils a curriculum that is broad, balanced and relevant to their needs and those of society providing the skills required for adult life. This will include fulfilling all the requirements of the National Curriculum and of the 14-19 Learning Pathways programme.
<li>4. To foster excellence in both academic study and personal standards, showing courtesy to others at all times.
<li>5. To continuously reassess the aims and objectives of the school with a view to a constant refinement and improvement of the quality of education provided.
