Dyffryn Taf is an 11-18 Co-educational Comprehensive School situated roughly midway between Haverfordwest and Carmarthen, and maintained by Carmarthenshire County Council. It opened as a Comprehensive School in 1989, with many new buildings, and has been extensively refurbished over the last few years. A new Mathematics Block, Science Laboratory and Sports Hall have recently been built, and overall the school provides excellent facilities for the education of its pupils. The school has an open admissions policy, the only limitation being the nature and extent of the resources made available to us.
Though the first language of the majority of our pupils is English, we have a number whose first language is Welsh; these pupils are offered History, Geography, Religious Education and P.S.E. through the medium of Welsh at Key Stage 3. All subject areas are housed in suites and have been provided with the latest computer equipment, thus enabling pupils to benefit from what modern technology can offer.
The school’s aim is to extend all pupils to their full potential, intellectually, academically, spiritually, physically and socially. All school policies have this as their central consideration and motivation. We pride ourselves on the way in which we endeavour to create a caring atmosphere and ethos, where all pupils are treated with respect. Great care is taken to ensure that pupils take appropriate Options in Years 10 and 12. Year 11 and Sixth Form students are carefully guided in their choice of Further Education or career. In the Autumn Term, the school holds an Open Evening where parents and pupils are invited to view the work of Departments.
