On Thursday 2nd July, Cwmcarn High School proudly presented their annual Year 11 Prom. The evening was a great success, enjoyed by learners and staff alike. The learners were dressed in their finest and looked absolutely spectacular. The school would like to thank them for their superb conduct throughout the evening and wish them all of the very best for the future.
Dear parent / guardian,
It is with great pleasure that I am able to send your child’s ticket to their end of year prom. As I’m sure you are aware, the year 11 prom is being held on Thursday 2nd July at the Hilton Hotel in Cardiff. Your child should aim to arrive at 7.00pm and will have an opportunity to have photos taken until they are called in to the ballroom at 7.45pm. Dinner will be served at around 8pm and the event will end at 11.45pm. In the past it has been a very enjoyable evening where teachers and learners have celebrated the hard work that has been completed during one of the most important years of their school life. It is important however to stress that attendance to the event is a privilege and as an official school event, the same standards and expectations apply as though they were in school.

Re : TRANSITION
Starting secondary school is a big step forall involved and it is our firm believe in nurturing all new pupils to the school. Our main aim when pupils start in year 7 is for them to be’happy and settled’. Visiting the school prior to year 7 helps learners to familiarise themselves with the school, teachers and new subject areas as well as having the opportunity to meet other potential year 7 learners.
Consequently, we would like to invite your son/daughter to our Year 6 Transition Day on Wednesday 1st July.

9 current Yr 7 learners visited their former primary school, Cwmcarn last week to share their experiences with learners in Yr 3, 5 and 6. Each learner had prepared a letter during their PSHE lesson and read their response during the assembly, which was an exceptionally positive experience for all involved. The staff at Cwmcarn primary were very impressed by the learners and pleased to see familiar faces back at the school.
Learners involved (from left to right) Amy Hobbs, Layla Huish, Lydia Weetch, Lewis Barker, Sophie Witcombe, Sinaed Sammars, Lauren Banwell, Josh Webb and Ethan Oliver.
Mr Robson is looking forward to upcoming assemblies at Waunfawr, Abercarn and Risca primaries and are the learners returning to their former schools. Details will appear shortly.
