At Coleg Cymunedol Y Dderwen we understand that the move to secondary school can be stressful for parents and learners alike.  We do all we can to reassure and support learners, whilst helping them to understand and respond to new challenges and opportunities. We work in close collaboration with our partner primary schools which includes the active involvement of our teachers alongside our Primary colleagues to ensure a smooth transition.
