OUR VISION

The vision for Brecon High School

Overview

The curriculum experience for pupils attending Brecon High School has been developed to be as relevant, interesting and varied as possible. As pupils grow through the school, a wide range of opportunities are offered to them. Collectively, these enable pupils to develop into mature young adults. At the core of the school approach to the school curriculum is the development of pupil skills and the ability for these skills to be applied a range of issues. All Areas of Learning Experience (AOLEs) contribute directly to this provision and are responsible for the monitoring of how well pupils make progress each term.  

Brecon High School Vision Statement – Be The Best You Can Be

Every member of the school community is expected to be the very best they can be. Brecon High School’s key focus is to produce young adults that are confident to partake within society and make a positive difference to those around them. A core guiding principle that underpins this ambition is to encourage and develop personal resilience and responsibility amongst all pupils.

We believe in empowering pupils to take control of their own learning and to take ownership over how they learn as often as possible. By doing this, pupils will learn how to make good choices and also have the ability to thrive in a fast and ever-changing world.

By creating a learning environment that has high expectations of everyone – and by modelling the behaviour and standards that we expect from our pupils – we can provide the stepping-stones that bring dreams closer to reality.

“Don’t tell me to reach for the sky when there are footprints on the moon” – Paul Brandt

Pupils, parents and staff have been celebrating at Brecon High School again this summer in response to the exam results achieved by both A Level and GCSE pupils. Pupils have had to endure an exceptionally challenging time with the prospect of a UK-wide lockdown due to Covid-19 as well as not being able to sit any external examinations this summer. 


At A Level, pupils performed extremely well and all were accepted into their first choice of University. A range of pupils achieved A and A* grades, including Ben Williams, Rhydian Rogers, Zachary Morgan, Willow Jackson and Aleksandra Fafara.


At GCSE, pupils again performed extremely well and have hard their hard work recognised. In total, just under a third of pupils achieved at least 5 A/A* grades. A range of pupils achieved at least 8 A and A* grades, including Amy Pitt, Jenna Welch, Kelsey Williams, Katie Griffiths, Erin Mitchell, Jessica Joseph-Jones and Robin Flower.





Headteacher Richard Jenkins said "I am absolutely delighted with these results which reflect the ability of pupils at Brecon High School. The character they have shown over the last few months has been outstanding. These results are a testament to the positive changes that are taking place at the school. I would like to wish all of these pupils every success for their future."
