A Message from the Headteacher

Prestatyn High School is a transformational school. The outstanding results we achieve for pupils and students, coupled with the first-rate pastoral care we provide, make us an excellent place to grow, develop and gain an education that will prepare young people for the rest of their lives. The school is also transforming the building too! We are working hard to make sure that our facilities are renewed so that all learners can work and develop in a modern, effective environment. These improvements include the new state-of-the-art science labs and the refurbishment of all of our sports facilities. We are exceptionally proud of the work that we do with our pupils and students, and I look forward to welcoming our next cohort of Year 7s so that they can enjoy their time in education and thrive in this academic environment. I am delighted to welcome you to our great school, and I am honoured to be the Headteacher of such a vibrant and successful school.
