Welcome to Tre-Gib
Ysgol Tre-Gib is a naturally bilingual 11-18 mixed comprehensive school set on a beautiful site alongside the River Towy, bordering on the spectacular Brecon Beacons National Park.
The school is a close knit community where every effort is made to ensure that pupils feel known, and valued, as individuals. We have high expectations in terms of work, achievement and conduct. Preparation for examination and citizenship go hand in hand. Extra-curricular activities are an important part of each child's development and pupils are encouraged to take a full part in them. Strong links exist between the school, the community and local employers.
The ultimate aim is that students become discerning and independent learners capable of taking an active role in their communities.
Ysgol Tre-Gib is a naturally bilingual school with an ethos that reflects the surrounding area in terms of language and culture. Welsh is taught to all pupils up to 16+ at a level suited to each individual's ability and in Year 7, the Welsh language programme is a development of that followed in the pupil's Primary School. An increasing number of subjects are being taught through the medium of Welsh at Key Stage 3, GCSE and 'A' level.
Both English and Welsh play an important part in the life of the school. All documentation and communication with parents is bilingual. Members of staff and pupils are encouraged to communicate bilingually in as many formal and informal situations as possible.
In recent years, Ysgol Tre-Gib has undergone a good deal of innovative change. Educational challenges have been met with relevant curricular provision. Recent additions to our facilities have included the addition of two new purpose built classroom blocks and a considerable investment in ICT facilities throughout the school. The school now has the use of 19 interactive white boards.
These developments form part of our programme for continuously updating and improving the provision and facilities we offer our pupils and students.
I hope you find this website informative. If you require additional information or would like to visit the school, please do not hesitate to contact me.
