Message from the Headteacher

"Bassaleg is a large thriving comprehensive school which welcomes pupils of all abilities.  Learning in its widest form is at the heart of what we do.  


Through our academic curriculum, the extensive range of enrichment activities and our pastoral support system, we aim to develop in pupils an enthusiasm for learning as well as the necessary skills to enable them to fulfill their academic potential to become good citizens as well as thoughtful and responsible individuals.

Bassaleg is an English medium, mixed 11-18 comprehensive school.  The catchment area is that covered by the High Cross, Jubilee Park, Marshfield, Mount Pleasant, Pentrepoeth and Rogerstone Primary Schools.  The number of pupils on roll is approximately 1750, of whom 400 are in Sixth Form.

Education is essentially a partnership between a number of interested parties and we particularly value the role that you as parents can play in this relationship.  I encourage you to contact the school if you have any concerns and I trust that this prospectus will provide you with relevant information that will help you to come to an informed decision about the next stage of your child's education".
