Pupils in KS3 (Y7, 8 and 9) do not usually sit exams. However, pupils are required to sit annual government tests every April (though this was suspended in 2020 due to the COVID-19 school closure).
You will be informed of the dates of these tests and they are held in classrooms during the regular school day.
Pupils in KS4 (Y10 and 11) are usually entered for a range of external exams. Most of these exams are GCSEs offered by the WJEC exam board for Wales. Ty Gwyn also uses Agored Cymru and Portal BTECs re vocational courses which may or may not have exams.
Pupils will always be prepared for exams, the dates and arrangements will be shared with you in good time.
Please check the provisional timetable below, prior to booking any events or holiday periods, thank you.
GCSE, Agored Cymru, SWEET and other qualification certificates will be posted to previous leaners as they arrive from the awarding body.
Please advise school of any change of address.
