Transition

Prestatyn has a good relationship with each of our feeder primary schools. We work closely with them to make the transition process as smooth and enjoyable as possible. We visit each school regularly throughout the year to gather information about individual pupils in order to plan effectively for their arrival.

We also welcome students from outside our area and place them carefully to ensure that their learning is fully supported.

A Welcome Message from the Headteacher

What a year it has been at our great school! There has never been a better time to join the Prestatyn High family. We have seen our best ever A-level results, great GCSE outcomes and the introduction of our brand new school uniform. Alongside this we have renovated and improved many of the school buildings to give all of our learners the best educational experience possible. These changes and improvements are just the beginning of our journey to be the best school in Wales. We are improving every aspect of the school, putting the pieces into place to make our school a beacon of learning and excellence. These improvements and the new school uniform have allowed us to continue to transform Prestatyn High and its community, further raising our aspirations and expectations of what is possible. The future is very bright for all learners at our great school. I am very proud to be the Headteacher at Prestatyn High School; a school recently visited by Estyn in 2017 and judged to be making ‘Good progress’ in all areas. My passion is for all our learners to be challenged and supported to achieve their very best. The staff here at Prestatyn High work tirelessly to ensure our pupils and students enjoy their time at school, work hard and achieve good outcomes. In an ever changing education landscape, our focus is fixed firmly on strategies to further improve the quality of teaching, learning, assessment, personal development, behaviour and welfare for all our young people. This first class education will provide them with the knowledge to achieve well in examinations whilst developing lifelong skills that will prepare them for their future.
Here at Prestatyn High we embed Literacy, Numeracy and IT skills in all we do, ensuring that all pupils are ready to make their way in the world and society. We strive that all pupils, no matter their starting point or background, make rapid and sustained progress. The opportunities available to learners at Prestatyn High are as numerous as they are varied. The broad curriculum empowers learners to progress well and achieve the very best academic qualifications. The enrichment activities, which includes after school clubs, additional GCSE qualifications and many trips abroad, allow pupils to expand their interests and horizons well beyond the school gates.
