About Us

'Learning, Respect, Ambition’

Our learning vision is:

At Croesyceiliog School, we strive to provide enriching and engaging learning opportunities, in and out of the classroom, to develop the skills, knowledge and attributes needed to lead successful lives. We learn together to become kind citizens that respect others and make positive choices. Our ambition is to ignite a passion for lifelong learning.

Welcome to Croesyceiliog School

Our school vision and Learning Manifesto underpin all we do at Croesyceiliog School.   

Learning is our core purpose, and it happens everywhere at Croesyceiliog School. Within lessons, learning experiences are designed to be varied and based in authenticity. We expect our students to be challenged and develop the skills of resilience and independence, so they are successful.  Our teachers provide a range of feedback, be it verbal or written, ensuring our students understand how to improve their work, so they can make progress and enjoy their learning.

Out of the classroom, Croesyceiliog School has a strong tradition in curriculum enrichment.  There is a wide choice from traditional activities such as Duke of Edinburgh Scheme, sports, drama and music along with newer clubs such as knitting and film club! There is something for everyone.  In addition, our library remains open for an hour after school Monday through to Thursday offering a supported study club.  Students can choose just to read a book, access IT, complete their homework or undertake research. 

We expect our students to learn to become leaders and provide opportunities through our school Senedd, Wellbeing Ambassadors and Student Leadership Team to refine these skills. 

Developing respectful young people is our second core purpose.  We expect all students to be kind to each other and celebrate the diversity within our school community.  We challenge when behaviour and or language is not respectful so that all our students can feel safe and secure in our community.  We develop respectful behaviours through teaching the importance of strong relationships based on mutual respect.

Our final core purpose is to challenge our whole community to be ambitious for themselves and others.  Our school has a culture of high expectations with the aim our students leave Croesyceiliog not only with set of successful examination results but, more importantly, they leave as young adults with a sense of purpose, as great citizens and young people that are kind.
