  MRS S WILLIAMS   Headteacher

I am Mrs Williams and I am delighted to welcome you to Year 7 at Ysgol Emrys ap Iwan. I am confident that you will enjoy your time at the school and that you can look forward to all of the experiences that high school has in store.


School keeps me very busy but I also enjoy gardening and walking my very excitable Golden Retriever Archie in the beautiful beaches and countryside that we are lucky to have so close by in North Wales.


Ysgol Emrys ap Iwan prides itself on offering an excellent educational experience for all of its learners. We will support you to make sure that you are settled, happy and able to achieve to the best of your ability. Our learners will always be our priority. Supporting learning and providing excellent pastoral care is important to us, which I hope reassures you. We are very excited to meet our new Year 7 learners and to care for you throughout your learning journey.


The team of staff who have been chosen to work with you are all skilled in supporting learners and will be happy to help you to make the change from Year 6 to Year 7.  I hope that you are looking forward to taking your next steps in your new school and that you will enjoy your time in Ysgol Emrys ap Iwan.

  MRS S VAUGHAN-EDMUNDS   Pastoral Leader

Welcome to year 7!


I’m Miss Vaughan-Edmunds and I am so happy to meet you! I know this is going to be a great year for all of us to grow and learn together.


In the Art room, we will be exploring the use of colour and experimenting with paint. We will also be researching and drawing inspiration from the local seaside. I am excited about exploring different ways of working with you all.


Before I became a full time teacher, I was a full time mural artist. I love to paint at home and also enjoy getting outside in the fresh air and walking my dog, Bailey.


We are going to have so many new learning opportunities this year, and I am looking forward to every minute of it!

  MRS E HUNTER   Assistant Pastoral Leader

Hello everyone, I’m Mrs Hunter and I will be your assistant pastoral leader in Year 7.


I am also assistant pastoral leader for Year 8 so I will have the pleasure of helping to guide you through your first two years with us. You can usually find me in the literacy hub and if I’m not there I’m never far away.


When I’m not in work I love to spend time having fun with my family and friends.


I am looking forward to getting to know you all.

See you in September!
