Ysgol y Gorlan - Our vision

Here, at Ysgol y Gorlan we will provide experiences that ensure that our children leave primary education respectful, healthy, happy, proud, kind and empathetic; learners who can play and learn with everyone while also being independent. In an area rich in history, community and Welshness, we aim to present experiences that motivate, and demand high standards so that our learners can face the challenges of a constantly changing and developing world. Knowledge of the local community is invaluable, so that, in due course, we can contribute back into our local community.

We will also broaden our children's horizons towards National and international awareness. Our aim is that all children follow their own strengths and aspirations, fostering accountability of personal responsibility and empathy towards others. By making use of the green land and forest we have on site, taking care of each other and our world is a permanent priority.

We are proud of the school's supporting ethos - 'we feed the heart to feed the learning, and in that respect, nurture civilized individuals of society
