Exam Season Arrives


The big day has arrived and GCSE examinations have started today. I would like to take this opportunity to wish all of our KS4 and Sixth Form pupils every success.

This has been an exciting week with the first planning meeting for the stage finish of the Tour of Britain Cycle race taking place. 

I am looking forward to a trip to London on Monday 16th as I will be representing the school at a ceremony at Buckingham Palace and collecting a plaque in recognition of Builth Wells High School's role as a Licensed Organisation for the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme.
