The Maelor School, Penley
The Maelor School is a mixed comprehensive school for pupils between the ages of 11 and 18.
The Maelor School is one of very few secondary schools in the area that offer pupils the opportunity to continue their study to A level in the sixth form.
The school was established in the heart of the Maelor in the small village of Penley in 1957 to serve the needs of this extensive rural area. The school is located in extensive grounds in a very pleasant rural situation.
As a school we set very high standards and expect our pupils to work hard, behave well and dress smartly. We encourage all our pupils to take part in a wide variety of activities and our aim is to produce pupils who have the skills and motivation to succeed in adult life. We are very proud of our academic success. In 2016 our pupils maintained the high standard set by students over the previous 9 years with 81% of them achieving 5A* - C including English and Maths.
In summer 2014 The Daily Post ranked The Maelor School as the 6th best school in Wales out of 3,079.
In January 2015 The Maelor School was confirmed as achieving the highest grades in Wales for pupils who receive free school meals
