About Us

Olchfa is a large and busy school, with productive relationships between pupils and staff. In all key stages, we achieve results which place the school amongst the leading education providers in Wales, both in raw and value-added terms. The school’s governing body, leadership team and teaching staff are never complacent; we know that we have to keep evolving what we do in order to meet the rapidly changing world around us and the needs of our pupils.
Of course, we are proud of our examination results, but school life is also about far more than that. There is an extremely wide range of extra-curricular activities at Olchfa with all main team games offered and regular success at County and International levels.  There in an annual musical production involving large casts both front of house and on stage, giving pupils the opportunity to take part. The Duke of Edinburgh scheme is well established and popular at all levels with expeditions for Bronze, Silver and Gold being regular features of the school calendar. Many clubs and societies are available to pupils, both during and after school, and new staff are encouraged to contribute to this vital aspect of school life. 
Although this website is a good starting point to familiarise yourself with what we do, the best way to understand our ethos is to visit us. We welcome visits by prospective pupils and their parents/carers throughout the year. If you require any further information, please contact the school and speak to our admissions officer.
