Achievement inspires success for all

Ysgol Iolo Morganwg was established in 1979 to offer Welsh medium education to children living in the rural Vale and over the years the school has gone from strength to strength. Currently the school has  219 children on roll yet it maintains the essence of a village school that contributes much to the local community.

As a school we aspire to create a welcoming, safe and happy Welsh learning environment where the children are offered a wide range of experiences and equal opportunities that will help them achieve and reach their full potential while also enabling them to attain the skills that will help them develop into confident, responsible and successful individuals.

Through the hard work and dedication of our staff, parents ad governors we aim to ensure that ‘achievement inspires success for all”.

Mrs R. Williams, Head Teacher

I wonder what i’ll discover today?

Ysgol Iolo is a one form entry school with one class for each academic year from Nursery to Year 6. A strong Welsh ethos runs throughout the school and the children both learn and play through the medium of Welsh even though they are fully bilingual from early on.

We develop respect and passion for the Welsh language and Welsh culture through a wide range of activities that include music, sport, the arts, sciences and technology, enabling the children to develop their interests, skills and talents through both statutory education and extra curricular experiences.

A variety of clubs are offered in school. Most run after school between 3:30 and 4:30pm for KS2 children.

Fun while learning....

It’s very important that children develop a taste for learning and for following their curiosity independently and through guidance. If a child feels comfortable and happy the learning comes naturally and our intention at Ysgol Iolo is to ensure that every child feels that way and enjoys all aspects of school life.

We ensure that they are always fully supported and that learning is fun and a pleasure. Helping us to achieve this are our very important children’s councils which are the School Council, the ECO Council, the ICT Council, the SNAG Council and the Sports Council. We also have two School Ambassadors. Though them we hear the children’s voice. For more information about their work click here.
