Welcome to Ty Coryton School

Welcome to Ty Coryton

Tŷ Coryton prides itself on providing a friendly, caring and supportive environment that encourages 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 allows me to share the dynamic experiences available here 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 well-being, 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 Coryton. For more about our residential services follow this link.

The staff team at Tŷ Coryton 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 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. Add to that our Wales Care Awards for recognition of our quality and model of care .

The decision to send my child to Ty Coryton was the best decision ever. Her teacher and support staff are amazing with her. I couldn’t have wished for a more suitable placement. I will be very sad when she leaves.

Ty Coryton, Parent

Working at Ty Coryton affords me the opportunity to enrich the lives of the pupils we work with. Each pupil is different with a unique set of needs and teaching them is all about working on making them the best possible version of themselves. Every day at Ty Coryton is different, no two days are

Deputy Head,

I am amazed at the development in R’s verbal communication. R actually asked me questions yesterday which is the first time ever. I am so proud of the reindeer, canvas painting and Christmas Tree ornament that he made and will display them with pride. Thank you for all you have personally done for R, and
