A huge and heartfelt thank you to all staff, pupils and families within our MHS school community. Your continued efforts and support have been instrumental in generating an incredibly positive start to this new half term for our young people. 

Covid19 update
Below is a quick link to the most recent letter issued by our Headteacher, updating the school community on Covid19 guidance for schools and also any changes at MHS that have been made to stay aligned with the most recent advice.
A copy of this letter, and all other letters issued this academic year, can be found on our ‘Letters Home’ page of the school website. Diolch
Competition Time
Mrs Griffiths is feeling extremely generous and has a crisp £50 note up for grabs for year 11!
A card will be issued to all learners this week, on which staff can sign to confirm attendance at any revision sessions which pupils attend in their own time. Once the card is completed, it should be returned to Mrs Griffiths for the prize draw, which will take place just before February half term. Any sessions attended in Sept/Oct can be backdated by staff. You have to be in it to win it- pob lwc pawb!
Year 7 PGL Trip
Unfortunately we have to announce that the proposed Year 7 PGL trip for April 2022 will not be going ahead.
After issuing letters to Year 7 pupils at the start of the week, we were subsequently made aware of an OFSTED inspection that occurred during the half term break. The report that has been issued by OFSTED has raised a number of concerns, and as such we have decided not to proceed with the trip and will instead investigate alternative enrichment opportunities. The welfare and safety of our pupils, your children, is paramount in everything we do at MHS and so we trust that this is the best decision for all those involved. Thank you for your understanding.

Young person’s mental health toolkit from HWB.
Below is a link to the young person’s mental health toolkit from HWB, designed for 11 to 25-year-olds. Here you will find six playlists to direct you to a wide range of online resources to help you through the lockdown and beyond. In each of the playlists you’ll find self-help websites, apps, helplines, and more that are here to support your mental health and well-being.
Please remember: if you’re finding it difficult to cope, make sure you speak to someone you trust. Who this might be is different for everyone, but it might include family members or carers, a teacher, a helpline, or a doctor. How you feel is important and lots of people are here to help if you need them.
