Saint Richard Gwyn

Special Measures lifted in record time

Staff and students at St Richard Gwyn Catholic High School are celebrating after Estyn announced that the school is out of Special Measures in record time.

After a recent monitoring visit, the Estyn team fed back on the rapid and major improvements that have been made since the inspection in May 2016 and has announced that St Richard Gwyn Catholic High School in Flint has been removed from the category of Special Measures. The school is judged to have made such good progress that Estyn has decided that further monitoring visits are not required.

Head teacher, Mr Paul Heitzman, said:

“I would like to congratulate all members of our school community. They have worked so hard over the last four terms. It is extremely rare for a school to improve this quickly. All of this follows on from our record breaking examination results in the summer, which made us one of the top five schools in North Wales.

I am proud of all our achievements. St Richard Gwyn has emerged stronger than ever and is now facing the future with great confidence. The aim now is to ensure that the school is outstanding in every respect in the shortest time possible’
