Ty Bronllys

Tŷ Bronllys prides itself on providing a friendly, caring and supportive environment that encourages all of our pupils to reach their full potential.

Our pupils are very important to us and supporting them to progress throughout their academic lives underpins everything that we do. This website will allow me to share the dynamic experiences available at the school and show you how the curriculum can be personalised to suit the individual needs of every young person that walks through our doors. As well as educating our pupils, we place huge importance on their wellbeing, health and care needs. Indeed, our school shares a site with our registered children’s home, which offers residential placements for those who wish to both live and learn at Tŷ Bronllys. For more about our residential services follow this link.

The staff team at Tŷ Bronllys are dedicated to helping our pupils to become caring and thoughtful members of the community. There is a strong emphasis on communication by whatever means is appropriate to the individual, as we believe that when our pupils are able to communicate their wants and needs, they will have the confidence and the skills to make their way in the world when they leave us.

We firmly believe in listening to our pupils. Many contribute to various aspects of school life through the Student Council, Eco Committee and pupil UN making choices about the school on behalf of the rest of their peers. All pupils contribute to their annual reviews either in person or through informative booklets completed prior to the meeting.

Further to this, we have a comprehensive and successful work-experience programme which allows pupils to gain essential real-world work skills and continuous learning, working in The Orb – a shop, cafe, laundry, office and kitchen on the high street in Porth. In fact, so successful has this provision been that we have recently been awarded the Careers Wales Quality Mark for our overall work experience offering. To this we can add several Wales Care Awards for recognition of our quality and model of care.
