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.
