School

Ysgol Uwchradd Bodedern is a county comprehensive school providing education for boys and girls between the ages of 11 and 18. Currently there are about 650 pupils on roll, over 100 of them in the Senior School. It is also a natural bilingual community school where, in addition to English, considerable attention is given to the use of the Welsh language as a medium of instruction. The school has a natural Welsh ethos.

The school was opened in 1977 and is situated on the outskirts of Bodedern in a quiet and safe rural environment. The extensive campus has vast hard surface areas for games as well as bus and car parks; large all-weather pitches, golfing area, tennis courts and several green pitches to cater for all sports. We have a modern building and good facilities - a gymnasium and sports hall, common rooms for year 11 pupils and senior school students, a powerful network with over 500 PCs and 100 laptops each one connected via a high speed link to the world wide web and clustered in one of seven teaching rooms, the Community Telecentre or located in classrooms throughout the school. For the other practical based subjects we have seven Technology and Art rooms with the latest in CAD / CAM facilities, six laboratories(which have been completely modernised and re-furbished within the last few years) and a theatre - Theatr Bro Alaw - which is probably the best on the island. The toilets have been recently refurbished, with designated areas for each age group. We give our pupils opportunities to work in a modern theatre, to enjoy the sports and leisure facilities and to use the latest computer technology to access and present information. Pupils may choose to stay inside the building and use these facilities during break and lunch times.

These facilities are available to the public during the evenings and extensive use is made of the community lounge, the gymnasium, the sports hall and some of the specialist teaching rooms.
