Welcome to Lewis School Pengam. It is my privilege to be the Headteacher of this amazing school, where, with the help of a highly qualified, inspirational and dedicated team of staff, we work hard every day to improve the lives of the young people who come to us. Our primary purpose as a school is to provide every young person who walks through our doors with the necessary experience, skills and qualifications to go on to realise their potential in a world that is increasingly demanding.
At Lewis School Pengam we are very proud of our strong heritage and values. Founded in 1729, our school motto “Ni ddychwel doe – yesterday never returns” is very much a principle to live by. We believe every moment counts in the education of the young people who are part of our community. Our teachers and support staff are innovative, skilled, professionals, who go the extra mile to develop an engaging and inspirational modern learning environment for our students. The achievements of all our pupils are highly valued, whether these are academic, sporting, artistic, or even overcoming adversity in life. Year in year out, it is a pleasure to see how so many of our students gain entry into the top universities in the country or gain prestigious apprenticeships and go on to enjoy successful careers across a wide range of professions.
At Lewis School Pengam educational inclusion, wellbeing and equity is vitally important to us. We believe in equal opportunities for all pupils, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, attainment and background. An educationally inclusive school is one in which the teaching and learning, achievements, attitudes and wellbeing of every young person matters. Ultimately, we want to work with you to ensure that all our students develop the knowledge, skills and character to become the best person they can be.
Ni Ddychwel Doe
“Yesterday Never Returns”
