School Description

In September 2012, Ysgol Llanhari was expanded to provide education for pupils from three to nineteen years old. The school has not yet reached its full capacity, and this year it has classes from Year 1 to Year 5, and Year 7 to Year 13. It has 631 pupils in total, namely 412 in the secondary department, including 63 sixth-form students, and 107 pupils in the primary department. The school is situated in the village of Llanhari. The secondary department admits pupils from a wide area, which includes Tonyrefail, Gilfach Goch, Miskin, Llanharan, Pencoed and Llantrisant. The primary department admits pupils from the surrounding villages, including Llanhari, Pontyclun and Talbot Green. Nearly all pupils are of white ethnicity. Forty-one per cent (41%) come from Welsh speaking homes, but 90% of pupils are fluent Welsh speakers. Approximately 8% of pupils are eligible for free school meals, which is significantly lower than the national averages for secondary and primary schools. Nine per cent of pupils are on the school’s additional learning needs register, which is lower than the national average. Very few pupils have a statement of special educational needs. The senior leadership team includes the headteacher, deputy headteacher and two assistant headteachers. The headteacher was appointed in September 2014. The school is currently a pioneer school and is working with the Welsh Government and other schools to proceed with developments relating to the curriculum. Further information is available from the Welsh Government My Local School website at the link below. http://mylocalschool.wales.gov.uk/Schools/SchoolSearch?lang=en 1 A report on Ysgol Llanhari October 2017 Summary Ysgol Llanhari provides stimulating and interesting experiences for its pupils to ensure that they develop as civilised and knowledgeable citizens.

The concentration of pupils shows likelihood of admission based on distance criteria

This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the Pupil Level Annual School Census collected by the Welsh Government. The data tells us where pupils lived at the time of the last Pupil Census (released annually in July).

Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with siblings already at the school, high priority pupils and selective and/or religious admissions) but we may have removed statistical ‘outliers’ with more remote postcodes that do not reflect majority admissions.

For some schools, the heat map may be a useful indicator of the catchment area but our heat maps are not the same as catchment area maps. Catchment area maps, published by the school or local authority, are based on geographical admissions criteria and show actual cut-off distances and pre-defined catchment areas for a single admission year.

This information is provided as a guide only. The areas from which pupils are admitted to a school can change from year to year to reflect the number of siblings and pupils admitted under high priority admissions criteria.

3 steps to help parents gather catchment information for a school:

  1. Look at our heat maps. They give a useful indicator of the general areas that admit pupils to the school. This visualisation is based on all attending pupils present at the time of the annual School Census.
  2. Use the link to the Local Authority Contact (above) to find catchment area information based on a single admission year. This is very important if you are considering applying to a school.
  3. On each school page, use the link to visit the school website and find information on individual school admissions criteria. Geographical criteria are only applied after pupils have been admitted on higher priority criteria such as Looked After Children, SEN, siblings, etc.
