Blaenau Gwent Council has announced a new mobile testing unit in Tredegar and has extended dates for the Nantyglo mobile testing unit. These testing units are temporary and have been setup to support the whole Local Authority. Please see the link for more information.
The school is following Welsh Government operational guidance, which includes ensuring the building is well ventilated - windows open are open in classrooms. Therefore, from Monday September 28th if pupils want to wear a plain dark navy or black V neck jumper under their blazer, they can.
Jumpers can be purchased from the usual uniform suppliers or from supermarkets as the school logo isn't needed.
There is a new temporary test centre which has opened in Nantyglo. Please see further information by clicking below.
