Following its recent inspection by ESTYN, the inspectorate body for schools and colleges in Wales, the Lampeter school was awarded a ‘Good-Good’ rating for current performance and future prospects.
Since it became an ‘all through’ school, catering for pupils from nursery/reception age to sixth-form in September 2012, ESTYN has reported ‘strong performance’ and ‘high expectation levels.’
Headteacher Jane Wyn said: “The successful ESTYN report is testimony to the hard work of the pupils, staff and the support of the parents, governors and the local community.
“We are really pleased that we have been rated ‘Good’ across all the key areas measured by ESTYN, including standards, well-being, teaching and leadership at the school.
“Working as an all through school has enabled us to ensure that every pupil has a smoother transition from primary to secondary, and we have seen constant improvements in the results.
“When Ysgol Gynradd Ffynnonbedr and Ysgol Gyfun Llanbedr Pont Steffan merged in September 2012, we were the first 3 to 19 school in the county, and amongst the first all-through schools in Wales.
“Four years on, it is great to receive such a positive report from ESTYN, and we are focused now on building on these strong foundations, to ensure that the school goes from strength to strength.”
