As a school, we are pleased and proud to have moved from red category since January 2018 to amber January 2020 under the Welsh Governments categorisation process.

Congratulations to the staff and pupils who have worked so hard to achieve this rating, next stop yellow!


I would also like to share with you the news that our Governing Body have approved the change to an asymmetric week this coming September. There will be a letter to follow after half term with further details and information on the changes to come in the new academic year. Thank you to everyone that took part in the consultation process, and for all of your ongoing support in us trying to provide the best for our young people. 


Pupil safety is paramount to us at Milford Haven School, as we are sure it is to you too. With this in mind please can all parents and carers use the Thornton car park to pick up and drop off MHS pupils, an increase in cars parking on the main Steynton Road is causing congestion and obstructions for both traffic and pedestrians.
Thank you so much for your cooperation and support in helping to keep all our young people safe.

As some of you may be aware, this week 14 MHS pupils ventured to Cardiff as part of the Seren partnership.

We departed at 6.30am amidst 60mph winds. Unfortunately due to the high winds the Cleddau bridge was closed and resulted in a Pembrokeshire tour picking up pupils from both Harri Tudur and Ysgol Greenhill. After finally arriving in Cardiff at 10.15am we had an amazing day in Cardiff Met University. Pupils enjoyed taster sessions in Art and Fashion, ICT, Technology and Sports Management as well as a tour of the campus.

Leaving Cardiff at 3.00pm we sadly had the journey from hell, finally returning to school at 8.15pm- almost 14 hours after we had departed Milford and our pupils were AMAZING throughout! Our young people carried themselves with a maturity beyond their age, and were a pleasure to be with even when things didn’t go to plan. At no point did they moan amount the delays and nothing seemed to be able to stop them smiling. They were an absolute pleasure from start to finish and all staff who attended have repeatedly said that they would proudly take them anywhere.

Can we also highlight and thank the brilliant support from the parents and carers who put up with the countless changing updates and late return time, you were all incredibly supportive and understanding which we really appreciate.

This week we have been sharing a variety of resources in aid of ‘Safer Internet Day 2020’, in a world of ever evolving technology we want to make sure that our young people know how to keep themselves safe online.

Do you know the age restrictions on the apps your child is using? Here’s a shareable guide! #SaferInternetDay #SID2020

I am overjoyed at the incredible amount of support we have received this week for our school production of Grease. Every night has been a sell out, which is a testament to the incredible standard of the production and the hard work of the young people. 

A huge thank you to all of the young people and staff that have worked tirelessly to put on such an incredible show, we are so proud of you all.

Following the success of the event last year, we will again be holding an MHS Fun Run- but this year it will be bigger and better than ever before! Information can be found in the poster below, and we also have some additional obstacles as pictured. There will be a limited number of race places available due to health and safety restrictions, places will be allocated on a first come first served basis but we reserve the right to refuse participation to individuals as this is a special reward activity and as such much be earned. 

As well as the 100ft obstacle course we had last year, this year we are adding a special feature as pictured below!
