The Welsh department at Afon Tâf consists of three enthusiastic teachers who strive to pass on their love and passion for the language. We work closely with our feeder schools to ensure a smooth transition between Year 6 and 7, with various projects in place to assist this.
The Welsh department pride themselves on fantastic GCSE results consistently being achieved by pupils in Key Stage 4. This has been achieved year on year thanks to the positive attitude our pupils show towards the subjects, and the hard work and dedication of the staff. Our engaging and challenging lessons ensure that our learners leave Afon Tâf equipped with the language skills needed to progress into the world of work. We are working hard to reinforce the government’s initiative of a million Welsh speakers by 2050.
We believe that pupils should be given the opportunity to use their language skills in a real-life setting, and as a result, we offer extra-curricular activities and trips to reinforce classroom learning. These trips include both day excursions and residential, with popular destinations being Llangrannog and Glan Llyn. We have a very strong link with Cardiff University to ensure our pupils have high aspirations and become familiar with Higher Education from a young age.
Pupils study National Curriculum at Key Stage 3 and then WJEC GCSE qualifications at Key Stage 4.
