Visit to Dolforwyn Castle

Pupils in Ysgawen visited Dolforwyn castle on Tuesday. They had a very enjoyable visit and an opportunity to bring together all their learning about the siege of Dolforwyn.


Members of the School Council represented the school at the Remembrance Service at the memorial gardens in Welshpool.


Please ensure final payments for Condover are made by 31st December. Thank you.

Governor Report to Parents/Carers

Every year the school Governing Body sends a report to parents about the previous school year. The report for the last academic year, 2022-23 has been sent out with this newsletter. If you wish to discuss any aspect of this report, Mrs Kershaw (Chair of Governors) will be at the Parent Forum next Monday.

Governor Vacancies

We have two vacancies on our governing body for Community Governors. These can be any member of the community and do not need to have a connection to the school. If you know of someone in Forden who has the skills or experience required to contribute to the effective governance and success of the school, and would like this opportunity to help direct the strategic direction of the school, please contact Mrs Fowler.
