Our aim is simple, we want every person to fulfil their potential, whatever their talents and ambitions. We are a school that is committed to ensuring that all our young people are happy, successful and ready for their lives beyond school. Our expectations and standards are high. We have a highly committed and caring staff who are dedicated to ensuring each child achieves their personal best. The school currently has 770 students, 50 teachers and 58 members of support staff.

We have fantastic parents and governors, who are extremely supportive in supporting the school to provide the very best education.

The Science department at Abersychan School is a successful, hardworking and dynamic team with a shared vision to ensure that all students experience the highest quality teaching and learning to achieve their best. The department consists of 6 full time teachers covering all 3 specialisms and a laboratory technician.

An outdoor area including a telescope, greenhouse, ponds and planting area is also used to enrich learning and support STEM projects.
