Ebbw Fawr Learning Community 3 - 16 Careers Site Eteach (38667)


The school opened in September 2012 and moved to our new sites in November 2012 and September 2013 following the closure of four schools in 2012 and a further one in 2013. This is a truly exciting time for the community of Ebbw Vale and particularly for education on the former steelworks site. With new multi-million pound buildings and high quality learning environments for students aged 3 upwards coupled with extensive leisure provision we have a wonderful opportunity to raise educational outcomes. Children are natural optimists. It is our mission to maintain that optimism throughout their time at the school and into their working lives.

How will we do this?
- By nurturing a love of learning
- By expecting more of our students in their work, appearance, courtesy and behaviour
- By providing state-of-the-art facilities and resources
- By offering new chances to succeed in ways they never previously thought possible
- By raising academic standards at all key stages We passionately believe that there is no limit to what a young person can achieve if they are given the right levels of encouragement and high quality learning opportunities.

This is exactly what we want for every student as they go through the various stages of the school

About Us

Ebbw Fawr Learning Community, the first all through 3-16 Learning Community in Wales, opened in September 2012. Our new £51.5M state of the art facilities provide a truly modern learning environment for all students. At every point of transition from home to Early Years, from Early Years to Primary, from Primary to Secondary and from Secondary to the Learning Zone, we will aim to provide the best possible care and support for your child. Ebbw Fawr is an exciting place to learn and we wish to encourage our students to become independent learners in a safe and secure environment. We will create an atmosphere in which hard work and discipline combine to provide our students with the determination and motivation to succeed. In return we expect a high level of commitment and endeavour from them, as well as very high standards of personal appearance and behaviour. We believe that our excellent facilities, in conjunction with high quality teaching, assessment and learning, will offer your child an opportunity to succeed at every stage of their education. Much of what we do is designed to find the key that unlocks their interests and skills, enabling them to be successful during their time here and beyond. We have supportive parents and governors, all of whom work with us to make sure all will succeed. Ambitious targets for all students will be set by learning areas and monitored by senior staff. A computerised tracking and assessment system will enable teachers to monitor effectively individuals’ progress and to update parents/carers regularly about their child’s attainments, progress and targets. As well as setting rigorous academic standards, we will strive to develop the moral, social and spiritual values and skills of all our young people so that they an become active and considerate global citizens. We have very strong extra-curricular provision in drama, Music, specialist curriculum areas and an extensive sports programme including status as a Welsh Rugby Union “School of Rugby” – one of only 15 throughout the whole of Wales.
