Chair of Govenors

Welcome and thank you for visiting Henllys Church in Wales School website. As Chair of Governors, I understand that choosing the right primary school for your children is one of the most important decisions that you have to make. There is a lot to take into account to ensure that our school is the right fit for you. This website aims to help you to make that decision by providing as much information as we can about who we are and what we offer.


If there is something that you cannot find, please don’t hesitate to ask a member of staff during our open events or make contact with the school. We are always happy to answer any questions you may have.


The governors are also here to support and challenge the school in the three key areas of vision setting, ethos and strategic direction; performance accountability for both staff and pupils; and ensuring sound management of the school’s financial resources. These are the background activities that underpin the smooth running of the school, allowing the teachers to focus their energy on what they do best, where they are most needed: with your children in the classroom.


We are extremely proud of the progress the school has made in recent years. We continue to maximise and enhance our campus, build our resources, train and support our teachers and endeavour to bring our children into a positive and exciting environment so that they can develop to their full potential.


As a Church School, your child will experience an all-round education that nurtures them academically, emotionally and spiritually, grounded in the beliefs and values of the Christian faith. I am confident that you will find us welcoming, compassionate, supportive and committed in ensuring you and your children feel right at home from your first visit.


If you have any questions or, indeed, suggestions, please contact the school office. We are always pleased to hear from you and do all that we can to answer your queries or implement your suggestions in a timely fashion.


I very much hope that you decide to join us in Henllys.

I look forward to welcoming you in person,


Reverend Elizabeth Kerl
