Information for Year 9

Year 9

Year 9 students had an excellent start at Elfed High School when they were in Year 7 and Year 8.  As a year group they have shown us that they are prepared to work hard to achieve high standards and to meet the School’s expectations. In return, all the students are very well supported so that they can enjoy their time in school and achieve their own personal best.

Here you will find a list of the Year 9 tutors and how to contact them; plus who to contact if you have any concerns about learning and/or wellbeing.
