A welcome note by the headteacher

Welcome to the website for Ysgol Gymraeg Aberystwyth. This was the first designated welsh medium school in Wales which was established in 1939 by Syr Ifan ab Owen Edwards. There were only seven pupils in the school during the early years but by now the school has grown to over 400 pupils. The children come from the town of Aberystwyth and the surrounding rural areas.The school has grown constantly during the eighties and nineties as more and more parents have seen the value of a welsh medium education. There is a marked increase in the number of non welsh speaking parents that send their children to the school as they see the advantages of bilingualism.


The governors in conjunction with the Education Authority have worked closely to ensure an appropriate building and purposeful resources in order to address the growth in the number of pupils. There are 18 teachers and over 20 support staff working in the school as well as 15 auxiliary staff. The team is enthusiastic and works conscientiously to raise standards and continually improve the school.
We take pride in the high standard of achievement at the school and the wide range of extra-curricular activities is also important to us, with pupils experiencing success in a variety of fields from the Urdd eisteddfod to sporting activities and art.


Our aim is to develop the whole child and to create a safe, happy and Welsh environment so that we can ensure the best of our heritage and culture is safeguarded and developed in the years to come. Read on for more information and to experience the ethos of this vibrant and busy school.
