An Estyn 'Good' School

A Message From The Headteacher

I am delighted to have been appointed Headteacher of Welshpool High School.

Ever since my first visit to the school I have had a genuine sense of excitement about being a part of such a fantastic school.

I have received a tremendously warm welcome from students, staff, Governors and the Local Authority. It has been a pleasure to have met so many ambitious, friendly and engaged students during my first few weeks in post.

Everyone connected with the school is incredibly proud of the positive examination results that were achieved by the students in the summer, following two years of disrupted learning, and it is our aim to continue to place a high value on every child being able to achieve their potential. It is important to me that alongside academic success, a child’s experience in school is a rich one in terms of opportunities to take part in the Arts, Sports, volunteering and leadership.

My outlook is always with three distinct hats on. That of a Headteacher, a colleague and a parent. This philosophy has always guided me and provides an effective platform for driving standards and upholding a positive ethos. I aim to stay true to this way of working throughout my time at the school.

I share the palpable optimism of staff and students about the school, and I look forward to meeting more of you as the year progresses and serving our community to the best of my ability, for years to come.

 Mr Jon Arnold – Headteacher
