We have a thriving Sixth Form here at Welshpool High School. Every October we have our Open Evening when we open the school to prospective sixth form pupils. Visitors are able to speak to staff and students about the courses on offer and to view the facilities we have.
If you missed our Open Evening for 2014 but you are interested in finding out more about what our sixth form can offer you, please contact the school.
Achievement Evening involves students from Year 8 to Year 13; this is an annual event where we celebrate the academic achievements from the last twelve months. This year Achievement Evening 2014 was held on Thursday 13th November in Theatre Clera.

Our pupils were proud to compete on the World Marathon Challenge earlier this term. The World Marathon Challenge is a running event in which teams of around 36 school children race in a relay to complete the full marathon distance and beat the World Marathon record set by Dennis Kimetto of 2:02:57.
As well as breaking a record pupils managed to raise an exceptional £2530.30, £2090 of which went to Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research, a charity very close to the schools heart.
Welshpool High School are proud to support Children in Need.
Our fundraising event this year involved several events in the Theatre during breaktime; name the bear, fill Pudsey with change and a cake sale.
Over £330 was raised, beating last year's total. Well done to all involved and thank you to everyone who supported the event.
A huge thanks to all who supported the charity this year. Boxes were collected on Monday 17th November.
Contributions came from local primary schools (Gungrog, Ardwyn, Oldford and Ardleen) as well as from pupils and staff at Welshpool High School.
We sent a total of 138 boxes. The boxes this year were destined for Zambia.
The school council members meet throughout the year alongside the whole school council which meet every half term.
The school council often suggests and/or helps co-ordinate fund raising events such as Sport Relief and Children In Need. Find out More »

"As a school we reflect the best of traditional values and practices while responding to the needs of a changing world. Students are encouraged to be self-disciplined and to show a sense of mutual respect. They are encouraged to aim high and work hard towards the fulfilment of their ambitions and potential. We want them to hold high expectations of themselves and their school. A rigorous academic mentoring programme supports this and parents receive reports three times a year to inform them of their child’s progress.We are continuing to strive to improve our facilities for the benefit of our students and the community at large. There are active links with business and industry and a close relationship exists with our primary schools. Young people need to learn to work with adults in a co-operative and purposeful way and we view the partnership between home and school as essential to successful education. We aim to establish good working relationships with parents and carers. Therefore, with your support, together we can ensure that your child enjoys an effective and rewarding secondary education."
