You will find the most comprehensive information about our school in our Prospectus. In brief we are a high school of approximately 1000 students situated on a large site alongside Rhyl Leisure Centre (which we use during the school day for our PE and sporting activities). We are a school committed to inclusion, the academic success of all of our students
We have a curriculum that is responsive to our learners needs and interests. In Key Stage 3 (Years 7-9 or ages 11-14) for example, in addition to the full range of National Curriculum subjects, we now offer our students the opportunity to take dance lessons. In Key Stage 4 (Years 10-11 or 14-16) we introduce a variety of additional courses in areas as Business Studies, Performing Arts, Study Skills, Salon Services, Construction and Vehicle Maintenance. We know we live in a fast changing world and we are very aware of keeping up with new courses development to ensure we meet the needs of our students.
Our buildings are not the newest but we very hopeful we will get a new-build in the not too distant future. In the meantime we believe that we make best use of what we have and are continually making efficient refurbishments and alterations. We keep our learning environment up to date by making extensive use of learning technologies in our school and we now have well over 300 computers, interactive whiteboards in many classrooms and a variety of other resources such as video-conferencing facilities. We work very closely with our ICT partners at Gaia Technologies (who also host this website for us) to keep our technology at the cutting edge and we are looking forward to developing a state-of-the-art Virtual Learning Environment for our students in the very near future.
We have an excellent staff in our school with a wide range of qualifications and experiences. Our teaching staff are always keen to try new things to help our students to learn more effectively and they maintain very good relationships with in our classrooms. Our support staff, whose numbers and roles have grown over recent years, play an exceptionally important part in the lives of our students and we are lucky to have such dedicated people in our school. Overall we have a brilliant team of people at Rhyl High School who are professionally and personally committed to the academic success and pastoral welfare of all of our students.
