Learn & Live at Orbis

Our schools are based within the grounds of our Orbis homes in Cardiff and Brecon. We’re not a one-size-fits-all type of school, its what’s right for each pupil, their learning interests and capabilities that matters.

Our living ethos follows in the same footsteps as our learning. We have a safe, homely environment that supports a fulfilling lifestyle.

Where can my child learn & live?

The school day offers access to experiential lifelong learning which focuses on promoting independence and well-being. Each pupil follows an individual, balanced and relevant curriculum and associated programme of activities, which promote appropriate access to a differentiated National Curriculum.

Our experienced Registered Managers and team of Residential Education Workers offer a wide range of leisure opportunities beyond the formal classroom timetables. Each child and young person is encouraged and supported to go out and about as much as possible – cinema visits, bowling, trips to the local leisure centre, meals out or day trips to theme parks, hiking and camping. There’s always something going on in the evenings, at the weekends or during the school holidays!

Both Tŷ Bronllys and Tŷ Coryton have a homely feel, with a small number of children, to create a ‘family’ environment. Care is individualised to meet the needs of every child, with collaborative working between the school and home across a 24 hour period and supported by the in-house multi-disciplinary team.

We all work towards providing our young people with the greatest opportunity to grow intellectually and morally within an environment which is safe and nurturing.
