2021 Leavers – GCSE Certificates

2021 Leavers’ Examination Result Certificates are ready for collection.  Please collect them from reception during school hours.

Certificates may be collected by the candidate, or a letter from the candidate nominating someone else must be provided to release the certificates to a third party.

There are still certificates awaiting collection for leavers from 2018, 2019 and 2020.  If you have not collected them, please do so as soon as possible as certificates will be returned to the examination board or destroyed.

Certificates are expensive to replace, and must be applied for directly with the examination boards.

ANTI-BULLYING WEEK 2021 (15th-19th November)

This week is antibullying week.
As a school we are supporting this campaign and hoping to deliver the antibullying message to all our pupils.  This year’s theme is ‘one kind word’. On Wednesday, we will have an ‘odd sock’ day to show our support for antibullying – please encourage your form group to support this (and staff).  Also, on Wednesday our pupils will attend an assembly led by PC Kim Harris on bullying and the consequences.

Cefn Saeson Work Experience Scheme

Work Experience is a wonderful way to provide our young people with a window into the world of work. Pupils always enjoy this experience and it gives them an idea of what work is really like. We are looking for community partners to offer Work Experience for our Year 10 and 11 pupils from Cefn Saeson Comprehensive School.

These could be

  1. Retail
  2. Clerical work
  3. Hairdressing or Beauty
  4. Garage work

If you are able to work in partnership with us please contact Humphriess12@hwbcymru.net and we can have a chat about how we can work together.

I look forward to your participation

Sian Humphries
