About Us Amdanom ni

Welcome to Ysgol Gymraeg Gwaun y Nant's website.

Our aim is to provide information for the parents and the community in order to establish strong links. The school aims to offer education and care of the highest standard to each individual.  

The school is situated on the Eastern side of Barry and serves the areas of Gibbonsdown, Cadoxton, Palmerstown, Pencoedtre and Wenvoe. The school was opened on its present site in 2001 after a period at Ysgol Gymraeg Sant Curig.

Over the years the school grew steadily as the demand for Welsh medium education increased. A high percentage of our parents are non-Welsh speakers but send their children to the school as they see the value of bilingualism. We work closely with our parents so that they are fully involved in their children's education

We hope that you will find this website useful and would welcome any comments or suggestions.
