Canolfan Gwenallt students regularly perform at the highest standard in national examinations and their busy and exciting lives as school prefects and leaders continue to astound us! Students from Canolfan Gwenallt leave us to study at the highest level in Welsh and British Universities, and over the past few years, we have secured a place for nearly every one of our students at one of their chosen courses within Higher Education. We are particularly proud of the choices available for you at 16+; a broad offer of traditional, BTEC and vocational courses. There are over 30 options choices – from Physics to Welsh, Psychology to Public Services, Engineering and Drama. Students will also study for the Welsh Baccalaureate, which is an excellent vehicle to gain qualifications in all of the Key Skills as well as diverse opportunities to work together on different projects.
I look forward very much to welcoming you to the Sixth Form of Ysgol Gymraeg Ystalyfera Bro Dur and I hope that you will enjoy all the opportunities available at Canolfan Gwenallt. If you would like to discuss any of the options offered, please contact us for more information.
