Welcome to Ysgol Gyfun Cwm Rhondda. Our web site will provide you with a brief insight into some of the outstanding work we are doing in learning and teaching to provide an excellent education for students who attend the school.
Cymer is an extremely popular and successful Welsh medium comprehensive school located in the historic Rhondda Valleys, South Wales. We have a wonderful open campus with good facilities and an enviable reputation in the area for high academic achievement and an extremely wide range of extra-curricular opportunities.
Standards are very important to us and we are extremely proud of the many achievements of students and staff at the school. This year saw record examination results at both GCSE and A-level demonstrating the extremely high quality of learning across the curriculum. The extra-curricular activities we offer provide many exciting opportunities for our students and raises standards further still. The school is also an accredited Investor in People and has gained the quality mark for numeracy and literacy.
The school has a unique blend of traditional values and expectations linked with the creativity and innovation that has put us at the forefront of curriculum design and learning and teaching. As a result, our students are hard working and well-rounded individuals who achieve considerable success by taking on challenges and working independently. Our core values of Giving and Receiving Respect support our mission for learning to ensure that every pupil reaches his/her potential.
Our aim is to be World Class and to provide education of the highest standard. We are proud to part of such an exciting learning environment helping to lead Cymer to this aim and look forward to many successes in the future.
We are always open to visitors and take delight in showing people around to witness the quality of work taking place during the day. If you would like to learn more about Ysgol Gyfun Cwm Rhondda, we look forward to meeting you.
