Achieve Your Potential
Welcome to the Ysgol Gyfun Emlyn website. Our aim is to provide existing and prospective parents with useful information, as well as conveying an impression of the positive atmosphere within the school. There is a friendly and purposeful relationship between the pupils and staff in the school, which is reflected in the social interaction as well as in the academic achievements of our pupils.
We aim to bring out the best in our pupils at all times and we hope that every new pupil will take a full part in the life of the school: in its social, cultural, academic and recreational activities. This is well expressed in the school motto – ‘Gorau oll y gorau ellir’, which means ‘The best of all is your very best’.
We will be very pleased to welcome your child as a pupil to Ysgol Gyfun Emlyn. We look forward to a happy association with you and to a successful school career for your child at Ysgol Gyfun Emlyn.

GCSEPod Exam Revision

“We appreciate that parents are concerned following a number of hoax threats across the UK.
“However, we would urge them to continue sending their children to school and not allow this to disrupt their education, particularly at this time when many pupils are sitting important examinations.
“The County Council is working closely with Dyfed Powys Police on this matter, who in turn are linked in to national security systems. This is a national issue not confined to Carmarthenshire schools.
“Whilst the national view is that these calls do not present a credible threat all agencies are taking the matter seriously and working together to protect the public. All schools have security and evacuation procedures in place, and the safety of children is, as ever, paramount.”
For a number of years, the Council has needed to make some tough decisions about spending priorities. The situation for the coming year (from April 2017) is likely to be better than expected, but will still involve a number of hard choices. Savings of £25 million will need to be made over the next three years.
In making the decisions, it is very helpful for the Council to hear the views from a wide cross-section of Carmarthenshire’s people.
