New Academic Year

New Academic Year

It is a pleasure to welcome pupils back to school at the beginning of a new academic year although in unique and unprecedented circumstances. What remains the same, is our focus on providing the support and care for your children as they settle back into our school community and to receive the best possible education with us at Glantaf. It is particularly pleasing to welcome Year 7 pupils and those joining from other schools, hoping that our induction arrangements will ensure that they feel at home quickly within the school community. Welcome back to all of you!

New start

I’m delighted also, to introduce myself as the new Head of the school. Despite the unique situation of education in this Covid-19 period, I am truly enthused to join the community at Glantaf, to build strong new relationships with pupils, staff, parents and the wider community and to lead the school in this new decade. For nine years, I was Head at Ysgol Gymraeg Ystalyfera – Bro Dur in Neath Port Talbot, and before that, periods at Ysgol Gyfun Gymraeg Garth Olwg, Plasmawr and Gwynllyw. I very much look forward to working with you and to facilitating an effective three-way partnership between pupils, the school and you as parents for the benefit and success of every individual pupil at Glantaf. I would also wish to extend a warm welcome to those joining our teaching staff, Ms Lucy Rolfe and Ms Katy Edwards (English Dept.); Ms Ffion Jenkins (History); Mr Llyr Gwynedd (Science); Mr Ceri Morris (PE); Mr Owen Pocock (French); Ms Gwenfra Jones (Art) and Ms Nia Wilson (SEN Unit), a very warm welcome to you to Glantaf!


I would like to warmly congratulate all students who received their A level, AS and GCSE / BTEC grades during the summer. It is good to note that almost all pupils have received a place in their first or second choice, in terms of College or University and I would like to thank them all for their hard work and contribution to the school and warmly congratulate them on their success. We look forward to welcoming a large number of Yr11 back to the Sixth Form to continue with us here, at Glantaf.

Return to school

We look forward to welcoming all children back during the first two weeks of term, and all pupils full-time from Wednesday 9th September.
