At Llanhari pupils will be encouraged to make the most of their talents, to develop their personality and grow both morally and spiritually. The education pupils receive will serve to foster discipline and high personal standards achieved in a positive, caring atmosphere, which permeates everything the pupil encounters in school. Pupils are encouraged to develop self -esteem and self confidence through a range of extra curriculum activities.

Through a well established pastoral framework pupils are encouraged to develop happily with a sense of value and purpose.

Our School Aims

  2. Each child is encouraged to develop his / her fullest potential in a happy, caring, stimulating atmosphere.
  3. We aim to ensure pupils acquire the necessary basic skills for life and consequently the curriculum will enable the child to:-
