Bryn Hafren is a purpose built comprehensive school situated to the East of Barry. It serves the community of Barry together with a number of outlying communities such as Rhoose and Wenvoe. It also attracts a significant number of pupils from out of catchment, both from other parts of the Vale of Glamorgan and from Cardiff.
The school currently contains around 900 pupils. Within Year 7 to 11 the school is a single sex comprehensive school for girls, offering an unusually wide range of curricular choices. We operate in partnership with the nearby Barry Comprehensive so that pupils may enter a mixed VIth form within the two sites, maximising choices of A Level/Level 3 courses. The large and growing VIth form currently contains around 400 pupils between the two sites, operating as the Barry Sixth Form.
The School is located within extensive grounds with easy access from the M4 and A48. The building is extremely well maintained and well resourced. The school enjoys excellent sports facilities and has recently invested in significant refurbishment and upgrades to the building. It is an extremely pleasant place to teach and for pupils to study.
Departments are well resourced, LSA supported with well-decorated and furnished classrooms. There is an excellent Learning Resource Centre with a wide range of books, audio, video and PC resources.
The school enjoys improving examination results. All subjects have results at KS3 which are above like schools. At KS4 we are particularly proud of our L2, L1 & Wider/Capped Points Score. Last year at KS4 the school obtained its best ever results for Maths and Science. The school is now working hard to improve its L2+ and English results at KS4.
The school is fully committed to the development of its staff and sees well-delivered CPD opportunities as one of the keys to its success. We are proud holders of a wide number of nationally recognised awards including, the ICT Quality Mark, Investors in People, CareersWales Quality Mark and the Welsh Secondary Schools’ Award.
Applications are welcome from well-qualified, enthusiastic, committed staff to share our vision of “Learning for Life”.
