On behalf of the governing body of Rhyl High School, I would like to welcome you to our school website. Rhyl High School is an English Medium Secondary school providing education for pupils aged 11 to 16. Welsh is taught as a second language to all pupils at both KS3 and KS4.


It was a fantastic privilege for me to be appointed as The Chair of Governors for Rhyl High School in October 2012. I have a long standing association with the school having been a former pupil and also a member of the Governing Body as a Parent Governor since 2001 during which time my four children have all attended the school.


The key role of the Governing Body is to help establish a strategic framework for the school and also to regularly review the progress being made.


This role is fulfilled by taking three key actions:-

• set aims and objectives for the school

• create policies for the school to achieve those aims and objectives

• set targets by which progress towards the aims and objectives can be measured


It is very important the Governing Body monitors and evaluates progress and to do this successfully we act as a “critical friend”. In doing so the Governing Body provides the Headteacher and the staff with support, advice, guidance and information drawing on its members’ knowledge and experience.

It is The Chair’s responsibility is to ensure that the Governing Body is effective in carrying out this huge responsibility.


Rhyl High School has a very good team of Governors who work extremely hard to ensure that our students have the very best education and learning environment possible. Our Governing Body consists of parents, teachers and representatives of the community with experience in education, finance, local government, commerce and industry etc.


Apart from it being a huge responsibility and also a great privilege, without a doubt myself and my fellow Governors are all very excited about the future of our school!
