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, 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.
