HistoryEdit

Ysgol Uwchradd Bodedern opened on 6 September 1977 and the headteacher was Carol Hughes. It replaced the old National School in London Road which was then demolished in 1984. The school's symbol is a thumb pressing seeds into the earth (hence the motto 'hau i fedi' or 'sowing to harvest').
