Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome to the Lewis Girls’ School website.  We hope it gives you a sense of our unique qualities, strong values, high standards and the rich variety of activities and learning opportunities we offer our students.  Our aim is to provide the highest quality educational experience, so that each student can access the best opportunities life can offer.  

Lewis Girls’ stands on a very attractive landscaped site in the heart of Ystrad Mynach. We enjoy strong links with the community and every year we attract significant numbers of students from outside the catchment area due to the high quality facilities, and excellence in academic achievement, sports, music, drama and the wider curriculum.

The school is vibrant, caring and enjoys a strong reputation.  Our students are happy and able to thrive through the friendly culture that enables them to feel safe and secure.  Our teams of experienced and highly skilled staff are dedicated to ensuring students’ wellbeing and committed to developing the skills and qualities that allow each child to become successful and thrive within and beyond school life.   We have the highest expectations of students’ academic achievement and we support each one to fulfil their potential.  We value learning, and want students to enjoy the high quality teaching that our teachers provide.   We believe that each child is unique and our role in education is to unlock potential and nurture the skills and talents of each person.  

Partnerships are vitally important to the success of our children and we value the school’s relationships with parents and the wider community.     We have strong links in the Sixth Form through the Upper Rhymney Valley Partnership, which vastly broadens curriculum choice for post 16 study.  We enjoy strong relationships with all our partner primary schools and provide a special programme of events and activities to provide continuity and confidence building for each child during transition from primary to secondary. We believe that together, every child can achieve and be successful. This is our core purpose and our mission.   

Please enjoy your visit to our website and I hope you will contact us should you have any questions about our school.  

Mrs L Denton
