The School in the Community

Sixth Formers take part in some form of community service as part of the Welsh Baccalearate / P.S.E. programme and there is a further community commitment from Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme participants.

Each year a number of Year 11 pupils choose to make items which will be of use to local primary schools or hospitals as part of their G.C.S.E. coursework. The school band plays at a variety of venues in the local community which has included church functions, village fetes, primary school fairs and at Maelor Music Society events; The band was especially honoured to play before the Queen at Overton's 700th Charter Anniversary Celebrations.

Developing and improving links with the community is an important part of the ethos of the school and every opportunity is made to open up the school and its facilities to the public.
