At Llantwit Major School, we firmly believe that people are our greatest asset.


We see ourselves as a school community committed to excellence, creativity and innovation. We encourage participation in a wide range of educational and life enriching activities, celebrating success in many varied ways. The ultimate aim is to help all students prepare to take maximum advantage of life long learning experiences in further education and careers, establishing themselves as responsible members of the community and beyond. By focussing on maintaining high expectations and relationships, fostering a positive ethos, providing a broad and stimulating curriculum and embedding the school at the core of the community, we aim to provide young people with a valuable and fulfilling experience of school.

After a difficult and uncertain end to the academic year, it was good to welcome students back into school both last week and today to collect their exam results.  


During these uncertain times, pupils in Year 11, 12 & 13 at Llantwit Major School are celebrating some of the best results the school has ever achieved and the results are a testament to the hard work the pupils put in during their A level and GCSE studies.  The school is delighted that nearly all Year 13 pupils achieved places on their chosen courses in their first choice universities and we are looking forward to welcoming back the Year 11 & 12 students to school in September to continue with their sixth form studies.


Fiona Greville, Headteacher said ‘Whilst the figures look very good on paper they do truly represent the ability of the pupils. Excellent results rightly reflect the effective partnerships between a school, its learners and the support from home. These results will help the students of Llantwit Major School move onto the next stage of their life journey.


Congratulations to the staff and students for their hard work and dedication in the most difficult of circumstances’.

Dear Parent/Guardian


Re Staggered end of day timings as of Monday 21 September

Thank you for your support in what has been another successful week in school.

Both of our neighbouring primary schools are staggering their finish time and pupils are leaving earlier. This is causing a significant build-up of traffic outside the school at our closing time and increasing the chances of a serious accident. In order to avoid the congestion of all pupils leaving the school site together at the end of the day, and to try to decrease the congestion on Ham Lane East and decrease the risk of an accident we have decided to stagger our finish time from Monday.

Pupils will leave the school site at the following times (or wait on their bus until their bus leaves at 3.05pm):

  • 2.50pm- Year 8 and 9
  • 2.55pm- Year 7 and 10
  • 3.00pm- Year 11, 12 and 13


Yours faithfully


Mrs L E Pownall

Deputy Headteacher



UPDATE 26-8-20

Following the updated guidance provided by WAG on the 26-8-20 and the advice of the Chief Medical Officer as written below:

The current advice from the Chief Medical Officer for Wales is that face coverings are recommended for all members of the public over 11 years in indoor settings in which social distancing cannot be maintained, including schools and school transport. 

It has been  decided that for the safety of all stakeholders all pupils and staff in corridors and communal indoor areas and as stated previously on school transport must wear face coverings. 

It is not currently our expectation that all pupils will wear face masks during lessons but we will update you if we have any further guidance.




The LA catering company ‘Big and Fresh’ have informed the school that coin loaders in secondary schools will be turned off to protect catering staff from handling money.  Please be aware that you will need to put cash onto pupil accounts via ParentPay.  Please contact the school if you are unable to do this.
