Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to Henllys Church in Wales Primary School. We hope that you will find this website useful, informative and easy to navigate.

I have great pleasure in being the Headteacher of Henllys and working with such a dedicated and successful team of professionals. All of the staff have the children’s best interests at the heart of everything they do. We pride ourselves on the exciting, highly effective and nurturing learning environment that we provide for all our children.

Our aim is to ensure that we provide an education which enables all children to succeed and be the best they possibly can be. We also prepare them for secondary school and the world of work.

We recognise children as unique individuals with specific talents and needs, and aim to provide rich and exciting experiences to promote an enduring love of learning and high levels of success for every child.

We believe that children will learn most effectively when school and home work together in partnership. We also believe that children should play a part, by taking responsibility for their own learning.

Our Ethos:

                       Growing and Learning Together through the love of Christ.

As the children move through the school, they grow physically but they also mature, become more knowledgeable and learn new life-long skills. As a school, we all want to grow and learn together.


Our Vision:

We want every learner to develop a belief in themselves and the words below spell out I CAN. We want to inspire and challenge the children to achieve, whilst recognising the need for them to be nurtured at all times. 


                    Inspire Challenge Achieve Nurture

Our  Vision Statement:

This statement reflects what we firmly believe the children of Henllys Church in Wales School will become in the future:


‘Our vision is to provide an outstanding education, rooted in the Christian faith and values, where all learners are able to reach their full potential. Our children will become ethically informed citizens, who really care about the world around them. They will be active individuals, prepared to lead fulfilled and healthy lives. With confidence and ambition, they CAN and will succeed!’


We operate an ‘Open Door Policy’. If you have any queries or concerns, please feel free to contact me or you can make an appointment to visit the school for a guided tour to see for yourself the rich learning experiences we provide for the children.
