Welcome to Darland High School

UPDATE – 24th March 2020.

Due to the latest Welsh Government Guidance we are closed as of Monday 23rd March.  At this time we do not know how long we will be closed for, but will provide updates as and when we receive them.

Please keep pupils at home.

In the meantime, pupils have access to learning materials via our Google classroom platform. Details of how to log-on can be accessed via this link: Google Classroom Guide

FSM pupils – we appreciate that with school closure some families will be experiencing difficulties.  We recommend that you contact local support https://wrexham.foodbank.org.uk/ via phone.

We are still awaiting advice and information from the Welsh Government and will update parents as soon as any information comes through.

Darland High School really is the ‘Hidden Gem’ of Wrexham. Set on an extensive green site in the beautiful village of Rossett we are well-placed to serve a network of village communities to the North of Wrexham. Darland High School is a fully comprehensive school for pupils between the ages of 11 and 16.

Our Motto ‘Aspire, Apply, Achieve’, reflects our ethos in supporting students to Think Big and set their sights high. At Darland, we recognise every student as an individual, with different needs and talents, and we work hard together to make sure we support and nurture successful, happy and confident learners who achieve in the widest sense of the word, and not just academically. We provide a curriculum that has the breadth to ensure each student has an opportunity to excel, and a dedicated staff to ensure your child has the very best support throughout their secondary school experience.

I am immensely proud of our school, but don’t just take my word for it. Come, visit us, and see this wonderful school in action.

Joanne Lee, Headteacher
