Ysgol Gynradd Gwaelod y Garth Primary School -

2 languages, 1 school


Gwaelod y Garth Primary School is a dual stream community school, which provides its pupils with education through the medium of Welsh or English, depending on parental choice. The school is situated in the village of Gwaelod y Garth, some seven miles from the centre of Cardiff. The school serves a catchment area comprising of Gwaelod y Garth, Tongwynlais and Morganstown.  

We are lucky enough to have beautiful surroundings and some wonderful buildings, but ultimately the real strength of Ysgol Gwaelod y Garth Primary School rests with the school community. The team is a strong one, relationships are excellent, the staff and children are well motivated and the parents and governors are very supportive. Education is a partnership between the school and the home and we value the excellent relationship we have with all parents.

As a school, we are proud of the collaboration between theWelsh and English Units. Pupils enjoy playing together during playtimes, share assemblies and presentations and have the opportunity to interact during school clubs. Some activities and lessons are introduced collaboratively including Chess lessons and PE lessons. Teachers from the Welsh and English Units plan, prepare and share good practice together to ensure standards are high throughout the school.

You are more than welcome to visit and to see for yourself what is on offer here at our school.

Mrs Jan Jones
