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. The school offers a wealth of wider opportunities to our pupils including sport, expressive arts, trips and activities. Our enrichment programme in Years 10 and 11 enables pupils to go out into the community to experience working in local care homes, nurseries and partner primary schools. Every year, we offer several trips involving foreign travel.
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.
