What a wonderful morning we had at Milford Haven School. A school with a defined community culture, vision, and values. There is an ethos of no excuses, a collective responsibility, and a clear understanding that success is only possible if all community members are involved. There is a strong focus on building mutually respectful working relationships. This was exemplified by the wonderful Prefect Team, and their amazing input into the Community of Milford Haven. MHS is a true Canol y Gymuned. The Foundation thanks you all for your hard work and dedication to your community
