The essence of discipline is to know oneself and to discipline that self.

The school strives to foster self discipline in all aspects of school life by nurturing respect for oneself, for others and for academic, moral and social standards, both in lessons and on the games field and in other activities. Whilst there is a written code of conduct, we believe that teaching and learning by example can be more effective. When the need for punishment does arise, we look for an appropriate and constructive form of punishment.


“Ysgol Gyfun Cwm Rhymni is a community that has an inclusive, friendly, Welsh ethos. It has an extremely strong sense of belonging, co-operation and shared aspirations. There is a spirit of industriousness and enthusiasm, which is fostered by all staff and pupils.”.
