It’s a pleasure and honour to present this website to you. It reflects all that’s important to us here in Ysgol Gyfun Cymer Rhondda in the heart of the Rhondda Valley – our language, our land, our history and our heritage.
We aim to ensure the best for our pupils in every aspect of school life. Our enthusiastic, committed staff, who give above and beyond what’s asked, work tirelessly to ensure our young people reach the best standards they can in every aspect of school life, so that they are prepared for the future and lifelong learning. Every individual is important to us here in Cymer, and we aim to develop every skill, competency, and ability, by providing broad and exciting educational opportunities appropriate to the twenty first century. We’re proud of the fluent bilingualism of our pupils, as they prepare for their future.
Welshness and respect is at the core of our school life here. Respect for ourselves, others, and our environment. Respect for our language, our past, and our unique culture. We are proud of each other’s achievements and our identity. We aim to create a civilised community which promotes the welfare and development of all.
Our many partnerships are important to us. Our close partnership with the home is essential in order to ensure the highest standards in all aspects of the school’s work, and coherent support for the pupils. This website is an important step in establishing that vital partnership.
We wish our pupils every happiness and success as a member of the Cymer family.
