About Us/Amdanom Ni

Ysgol Pen-y-Bryn is a local authority maintained special school in Swansea. 

The school currently provides for 132 pupils aged between 3 and 19 years.  Our pupils have a wide range of additional learning needs including autistic spectrum disorder and many have associated communication, behavioural and/or sensory difficulties. 

At Ysgol Pen-Y-Bryn, each and every pupil is valued as an individual where a bespoke and appropriate curriculum is delivered to provide them with relevant, exciting and challenging learning opportunities and experiences to enable them to reach their potential.  At Ysgol Pen-y-Bryn, we pride ourselves on the high standards of achievement and excellent behaviour of all our pupils.

To meet the needs of our learners we provide a high level of staff:pupil ratio.  Staff at Ysgol Pen-Y-Bryn are highly trained in areas of additional learning needs and our specialist staff provide interventions to target and support specific needs and challenges. 

We have developed a skills based curriculum and this continues to develop as we influence the new Successful Futures curriculum.  As a pioneer school we are leading the way for positive change in education in Wales.

We offer a 24 hour curriculum in our residential unit giving pupils unique opportunities to develop their social, independence and life skills.

Community is vitally important to the life and ethos of Ysgol Pen-Y-Bryn.  We encourage our parents, pupils, governors, partners and community, both locally and internationally, to collaborate for the best possible learning experiences for our pupils.
