  At Llantwit Major School, we firmly believe that people are our greatest asset.

We see ourselves as a school community committed to excellence, creativity and innovation. We encourage participation in a wide range of educational and life enriching activities, celebrating success in many varied ways. The ultimate aim is to help all students prepare to take maximum advantage of life long learning experiences in further education and careers, establishing themselves as responsible members of the community and beyond. By focussing on maintaining high expectations and relationships, fostering a positive ethos, providing a broad and stimulating curriculum and embedding the school at the core of the community, we aim to provide young people with a valuable and fulfilling experience of school.

Applications must be made by 4.00 pm every Friday for provision the following week (Monday 7.00 am - Sunday 7.00 pm). 

If Hub 12 does not receive any bookings for a particular day, it will be closed to ensure the safety of all, and staff will work remotely.
