Welcome to Lliswerry High School
The Headteacher, Governors and staff are delighted to offer you a warm and sincere welcome to our school which we hope you will soon regard as your school.
Lliswerry High School is a lively, caring and successful school which aims to balance tradition with initiative and development, in order to prepare students for the challenges of adult life. Its experienced and committed staff believe in setting high standards and seek to ensure that pupils enjoy a full range of successes. Recent achievements have been in many areas including academic, sport, music, drama, technology and business enterprise. Together with the school’s long established reputation for providing high levels of care and guidance, these achievements help to explain the growing demand for places from outside of its ‘catchment’ area.
An essential ingredient of such successes is a strong spirit of co-operation between parents and teachers – a partnership which in itself can only be achieved if there is mutual trust and understanding. It is therefore important that parents know about the school and what it seeks to do. This website is intended to provide such information.
Lliswerry is a mixed comprehensive school maintained by the Newport Local Education Authority (LEA) and catering for the 11 to 18 age range. The annual intake is around 190 pupils. A teaching staff of approximately 60 teachers is assisted by secretarial and technical staff and learning support assistants.
The school is situated in south-east Newport, approximately two miles from the M4 motorway and on the boundary between Lliswerry district and the more rural areas of Nash and Goldcliff. Built in 1970s, it occupies a large and open campus and has the distinct advantage of being a single building under one roof.
We are constantly striving to make the school a pleasant place in which to work and are continuing to undertake an extensive programme of redecoration and refurbishment. Recent improvements include an extensively resources Library, a new Information and Communications Technology Resource Centre and refurbished Science laboratories. The school hall seats 450 pupils and is used for the performing arts and school assemblies.
