Ysgol Gwynedd is a County Primary School in Flintshire catering for both boys and girls between 3 years and 11 years of age (Early Years, Foundation Phase and Key Stage 2). The school, built in 1949, stands in an elevated position overlooking the town of Flint and has breathtaking views over the Dee Estuary and towards the Wirral. The current number of children currently on roll is approximately 560, an increase of nearly 150 pupils since 2013.
The school is housed in a large, well maintained building. There are three wings: Elwy (Foundation Phase), Alun (Year 3/4) and Dyfrdwy (Year 5/6)consisting of eighteen classrooms. We have a spacious hall which serves as a dining room and gymnasium and a fully equipped kitchen therefore high quality school meals are prepared on site for pupils and staff. Pupils bringing packed lunches are supervised in their registration classrooms.
The school is well resourced with modern equipment. We have invested heavily in our ICT provision which includes well over 60 iPads, interactive whiteboard in every classroom and 10 mobile laptop trolleys each containing 12 laptops each. Both Foundation Phase and KS2 have access to books within their classroom areas with a combined total of well over a 1500 reference books.
Since 2009 Ysgol Gwynedd have welcomed Ysgol Pen Coch (an amalgamation of Ysgol Belmont, Ysgol Delyn and Ysgol Y Bryn) and the Flying Start Centre to the site which has added to the vibrance of such a wonderful location. Ysgol Gwynedd have fostered strong links with both sites and this is evident in the strong Inclusion programme between Ysgol Pen Coch and Ysgol Gwynedd as well as members of the Ysgol Gwynedd support staff running the Family Fun Fridays at the Flying Start Centre.
