We are getting ready to welcome a bumper intake of year 7’s this September. Around 170 students are expected to take up their place, and they are all invited to spend two days at the high school in July to start finding their way around and begin to experience high school life. Our transition days are the 6th and 7th July, with a short meeting for parents on the evening of the 6th.

"We are delighted to receive this award, which is not only in recognition of the excellent standards achieved by our most able students, but also by students of all abilities across the school. What this award demonstrates very clearly is that students at Welshpool High School are challenged to perform well and are supported very capably by a team of talented teachers and support staff. There is a strong culture of learning and achievement in the school, and success is rewarded regularly and sincerely. We were also very pleased that the award noted the rich and varied extra curricular activities offered in the school as a real strength." Jim Toal - Headteacher

A Message From The Headteacher
"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."
