A MESSAGE FROM THE HEADTEACHER
This is a very difficult time for us all and I think for our young people in particular. I want to reassure you that, despite the students not actually being on site, we are committed to doing everything possible to support and motivate our young people. Their happiness, wellbeing and education is at the heart of everything we do. Treorchy Comprehensive School prides itself on being a ‘community school committed to excellence’.
It is a pleasure and privilege to present the school’s website to you and I hope the information presented will give you a real insight into the services that Treorchy Comprehensive School provides for our students, parents and cares and the wider community.
Our school serves the Upper Rhondda and there are currently approximately 1600 students educated at the school, over 350 of whom are in the Sixth form.
The ethos of the school is firmly embedded in our core values of RESPECT, RESPONSIBILITY and ASPIRATION. An extensive and flexible curriculum, excellent pastoral care and a rich and diverse programme of enrichment activities ensure that all our pupils thrive within a caring and supportive atmosphere.
We extend an equally warm welcome to current students and their families, potential new students and their families and anyone else interested in seeing what we do and how we do it at Treorchy Comprehensive School.
In safer times, I look forward to meeting you all and welcoming students and visitors back on site. Until then please contact the school for more information on our school.
Take care and keep safe,

Non-Screen Time Thursday Afternoon 11th February 2021
From 12.40pm onwards on Thursday 11th February, we would like the entire school community, both pupils and staff, to have a break from being in front of a screen to support our mental and physical health. There will be no live lessons taking place at this time, or blended learning activities set. Instead, here are some of the ideas for activities that you could do during this time:
- Walk/run/cycle outdoors
- Do an indoor exercise routine, e.g. aerobics routine, 5 minute workout etc.
- Go on a nature trail
- Read a book
- Do a craft project
- Do a jigsaw
- Play a board game
- So some puzzles from a puzzle book
- Relax with a mindfulness colouring sheet/book
- Draw a picture
- Help with household jobs in the house or outside
- Write a letter to a friend or member of your family
- Write a short fictional story
- Cook – help to make a meal for the family, bake cakes/biscuits, etc.
Enjoy! Please share stories and pictures of your adventures with us on Teams!!
We know how difficult it is for children, young people, parents, carers and teachers at the moment. Barnardo’s Education Community provides access to FREE online trauma informed resources with a focus on loss, grief and bereavement to support the children and young people across your settings. There is also a section on staff wellbeing with lots of useful tips and advice to help us all get through this.
