Dyffryn Taf welcomes all students into the Sixth Form to continue their learning and development as young people. We offer a varied and challenging curriculum.
The supportive school community provides and excellent progression for Year 11 students and new opportunities for students from other learning establishments.
The School aims to develop all learners as they progress from their 14-16 pathway into an individualised 16-19 pathway.
The School has established a reputation for academic excellence, with staff at Dyffryn Taf dedicated to supporting your son and daughter in reaching their potential. Exam data shows we have the highest A*-C within our family of schools, and above the local authority average. A large majority of our Sixth Form are accepted each year at Universities, including Oxford and Cambridge.
We want our Sixth Formers to leave well-qualified, skilled and challenged, ready to progress in their future. In the Sixth Form there are many opportunities to broaden your curriculum (extra-curricular activities in sport, music, drama, DofE etc) and refine you interests (super curricular activities such as EESW and Seren Hub). We expect everyone to be involved in widening their experiences and contributing to their community.
