Ysgol Gymraeg Nant Talwg

The school lies within the grounds of the Welsh medium-comprehensive, Ysgol Bro Morgannwg and will become part of a fully amalgamated Welsh medium learning community in September 2015.

 

The new community will teach through the medium of Welsh from the first year of nursery at 3, moving to the secondary school at year 7 through to post GCSE learning opportunities up to the age of 19.

 

The school is growing year on year and will have a full profile of primary school year groups by September 2017. An investment of £2.7 m has been made in building a modern and innovative primary school that provides state of the art facilities and tailor made outside space enabling the school to enhance the children's experience of an outdoor learning environment .

 

The new school is the first in the Vale of Glamorgan to be built using an optimised design model and was built in partnership with ISG construction. The school meets BREEAM Excellent standards.

Facilities in the new school include:

  • Central learning zone
  • 8 classrooms
  • Flexible IT facilities in all classroom and resources spaces
  • Hard and soft surface outdoor learning and play spaces
  • 21st century kitchen
  • Flexible sports/dining hall space 

 

Education Benefits

The new school benefits from an innovative classroom layout, supported by hi-tech learning equipment. The centre of the school, called the ‘Heart Space’ is a light and airy space which provides additional learning facilities and meeting spaces.

Classrooms lead off from the heart space with classrooms opening out to hard or soft and play areas.

 

Community Benefits One of the principle outcomes for building the school was that it not only provided the area with improved Welsh medium primary school facilities but involved the community in sharing its success.
