The Welsh Baccalaureate qualification has become an integral part of our pupils’ curriculum. Our students will study the diploma at the level most appropriate to their learning.

Our aim is that every student leaves Cwm Rhymni with at least one of the levels of the Welsh Baccalaureate, the highest level being the equivalent to an A Grade at A Level.

The Welsh Baccalaureate recognises our pupils’ ability in a variety of curriculum areas. They study an exciting and relevant module on Wales, Europe and the World which broadens their knowledge of political, economic, cultural and social issues in today’s society. Important current affairs are addressed through an extensive Personal and Social Education programme. As part of the Welsh Baccalaureate, all pupils will learn a new foreign language,successfully complete work experience, voluntary work and an enterprise initiative. Our pupils also prove their competency in all of the essential and key Skills, before being awarded the Welsh Baccalaureate diploma.

Many guest speakers are invited to Welsh Baccalaureate lessons, as well as pupils being able to participate in field trips both locally and nationally. The school has taken every opportunity to introduce this exciting new qualification in a lively and relevant way, which allows every opportunity to educate our pupils to become inquisitive and independent learners.
