What the parents say...

Gwernyfed is a brilliant school. My daughters both went there from 11-16. They were encouraged to achieve academically but also there are many opportunities to develop interests and the school is at the heart of the community. Close links with the Hay Festival have led to amazing opportunities with authors and workshops not usually afforded to a state school.rural . My eldest daughter ended up reading history at Oxford thanks to her inspiring history teacher and my youngest is currently at Cambridge. Every year 3 or 4 pupils get interviews at Oxbridge or places at medical school. For a non selective state school of 500 pupils this is amazing. As the local GP I I help pupils interested in careers in medicine /nursing /paramedics and other local businesses also get involved supporting pupils in their career development. Thankyou Gwernyfed for the brilliant start you gave my girls.

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.


This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

Years you were there

Can be left blank but, if you can, think of a few words that will bring a smile.
