St Cyres School Careers Site Eteach (12619)


St. Cyres School is an 11-18 mixed, English medium, non-denominational Comprehensive School. The School houses some 1100 pupils in Years' 7-13 is on the outskirts of Penarth in the Vale of Glamorgan. Our students are drawn partly from five associated junior schools within Penarth and nearby villages and partly by parental choice from a wider area stretching as far as Barry and parts of Cardiff. The school also accommodates a number of pupils with physical disabilities, hearing impairment and a number of other learning difficulties. The school is therefore proud of the fact that its academic results have consistently been well above national norms. The school enjoys very good liaison with its contributory schools and has an excellent reputation in the community. This is emphasised by the fact that substantial numbers join us from outside the traditional catchment area. The school attaches great importance to the effective guidance and pastoral support of all pupils. The progress and welfare of each year group is overseen by a Director of Pupil Progress, assisted by an interdisciplinary team of support staff and a team of Learning Coaches. All pupils are interviewed individually by Learning Coaches every term. Each year group has a Year Council which enables and encourages pupils to play an important part in the development of the school and the School Council which is also very active. All pupils, including the Sixth Form, are expected to wear school uniform. Our smart but quite informal uniform has proved very popular with students of all ages. Sixth formers wear a different uniform from the rest of the school, which they chose when it was introduced.
