This week has been exceptionally busy here at MHS, and we have made every effort to share as much as we can with you via our website, WEDUC and social media platforms. 


11.11.20 – Remembrance Day is a memorial day observed in Commonwealth member states since the end of the First World War to remember the members of their armed forces who have died in the line of duty.
World War One had mobilised over 70 million people and left between nine and 13 million dead and as many as one-third of these with no grave. The allied nations chose this day and time for the commemoration of their war dead.
At 11 am on 11 November 1918, the guns on the Western Front fell silent after more than four years of continuous warfare. The allied armies had driven the German invaders back, having inflicted heavy defeats upon them over the preceding four months.
The 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month attained a special significance in the post-war years and became universally associated with the remembrance of those who had died in the war.
On Wednesday we held lessons, made displays, laid wreaths and observed a silence at MHS to mark this special day. We made sure that there were plenty of opportunities for staff and pupils to pay our respects on this Remembrance Day to those who fought in World War One. We will remember them. Lest we forget. ⚓️
Yesterday the whole school community were invited to join us for our first ever virtual Open Evening! This year we were sadly unable to host our annual Open Evening in its traditional format, where usually we would open our doors to the whole school community and welcome you onto school site. We have worked hard to stay connected to the families and town we serve, and so come together to bring you a virtual version of our Open Evening which we hope you will enjoy. This event went live yesterday, but will remain on our website so you can take a look at your leisure. Please help us share this across the school community to help reach all those that can benefit from an insight into school life here at MHS.
The Milford Haven School Sixth Form have always strived to support Children in Need, and we are so very proud of our history of fundraising for this cause. This year however, our plans have had to be streamlined and scaled back to ensure that we can fundraise in a safe and responsible way.
As a result we hosted our first virtual CIN event this year, the ‘Milford Wiggle’! This was a 24hr danceathon in which our pupils, teachers and community members dance in a relayed event from 1.30pm on Thursday 12th November till 1.30pm Friday 13th November. At the time of posting this blog we still have a few hours to go, but are well over half way to reaching our fundraising target. We cannot wait to share with you a grand total, it may not be the most money we have ever raised but I think we can all agree that
Da iawn pawb to our wonderful senior prefect team for your hard work organising this event. And thank you to all members of our school community involved in the ‘Milford Wiggle’, every year you blow us away with your support and generosity. It’s not too late to support us, every penny counts so if you are able to donate here is the link again:
Please see below a link to an important letter issued this week for parents and carers of all Year 11 pupils. 

As you are aware we are working in some very challenging circumstances, and as a result of the coronavirus restrictions we have had to make a change to how we organise our pupil progress evenings at present. Although we are prevented from holding face to face events, we feel it is very important that you are able to have contact with our Strategic Leader for Key Stage 4 (Mrs Michelle Griffiths). As such we are offering all parents and carers of Year 11 pupils the opportunity to book a slot for a telephone call from this member of our senior team. If you would like to book a slot to speak with Mrs Griffiths for a general update on how your child is progressing or for an opportunity to discuss any concerns you may have, please complete this form: 

Thank you to everyone that has signed up to our MHS 100 Reasons, as always we really appreciate the support from our school community.
Sadly, although we have had extremely positive feedback and lots of praise for the project, we have not recruited enough members to proceed. Sadly that means that at this time we will not be able to run ‘MHS 100 Reasons’, but will put a pin in it for now as this is a project we would like to revisit in the future.
If you have signed up already all cash payments will be refunded, cheques will not be banked, and if you have set up a standing order please cancel with your bank. Again, thank you all so very much for your continued support.
Information for parents/carers of pupils in Years 9-13:
To support home learning, pupils have been reminded this morning via their year group’s Google Classroom of the fantastic resource GCSE POD. GCSE POD is designed to support the GCSE curriculum so is of great benefit for years 9-11, however all year groups can access the website and resources. Pupils have been reminded how to access the website via their MHS email addresses, as well as receiving a video site tour.
Should parents wish to see what the site has to offer, please view the following videos:
If you have any further questions, please email:

We have attached below some useful information from Welsh Government for parents and carers. This includes details on the Track & Trace system currently in operation, and also when and for how long you may need to isolate. 

Thank you to everyone that has continues to ensure that their children attend school in proper school uniform. It is important that pupils wear the correct clothing as our uniform helps to put all young people on an equal footing, supports the safeguarding of your children and creates a sense of school community. If you are having issues with sourcing school uniform please be aware that there is a grant available from PCC for those that qualify, and we also have a small amount of uniform stock at school for emergencies. Details of our school uniform can be found on our school website, along with a copy of the dress code policy.

There have been lots of new rules and tweaks to our school systems since the start of this academic year to ensure that we are doing everything possible to keep our whole school community safe, and these changes will all remain in place for the rest of this term. Some of our new strategies implemented include a one way system, almost 100 additional hand sanitising stations around school, and all staff and pupils have been provided with face masks. As adults we all check for the basics before we leave home- keys, wallet, phone. ✅
MHS pupils we need you all to check before leaving home that you have – a face mask, a drink of water, your own set of stationery. ✅
We at MHS are doing everything we can to support the safety of our whole school community, but it is vital we all play our part. ⚓️
All parents and carers in all year groups have been issued login codes for our school app WEDUC, this is one of the easiest ways to keep in touch with us and stay up to date with school life.
Please contact us if you need any support getting started with the app, or have any trouble logging in, so we can help you get connected.
