Our Ethos

At Ysgol Rhosnesni High School we are proud of the achievements of our students in a wide range of fields both academic and enrichment, and we believe in high standards and expectations. We believe that we can make a positive difference to the future life-chances of each and every young person.


We believe in working together with our students to develop their future roles as ambassadors of learning, citizens and workers and aim to equip them with the necessary skills, knowledge and understanding they will need for future adult life.

ICT

The department is staffed by:

Miss E. Stanley (Subject Leader)

Mr A. Kulke

Mr R. Jones (Network Manger)

All teachers have responsibility for teaching KS3 and KS4 Computer Science and ICT. Staff are available at break times and most days after school to give help and support to students wanting to improve their work. Over the year a number of extracurricular activities take place from using Raspberry Pis, to coding clubs. We are also fortunate enough to have our own coding room which KS3 will use in some of their lessons.
