About Us

Bryn Tawe was established in 2003 with 95 pupils. Since then, the growth in pupil numbers has been remarkable, with the first cohort now well established in the world of work, further or higher education. In a relatively brief period the school has established a successful reputation academically, culturally and socially. We are proud of our pupils’ GCSE an A Level results, which are amongst the best both locally and nationally. The school Estyn inspection in 2013 confirmed the high standard of our pupils’ attainment as well as the standard of teaching and learning at the school. Bryn Tawe is a close and friendly school with a wide ranging choice of extra-curricular opportunities. We want our pupils to grow into responsible and ambitious citizens, who are tolerant, respectful and compassionate towards others. We are proud of our school buildings and facilities, and our significant investment annually provides our pupils with a learning environment which is second to none. “Ennill llwyr yw ennill iaith”, our school motto, reminds us of the advantages of being bilingual. Being proficient in two languages allows our students to enjoy the rich cultures of both languages, as well as enhancing the opportunities available to them in the job market. It is a privilege to provide our pupils with the best possible educational experiences, within a wide choice of academic and vocational routes. We pride ourselves in the personal support that every pupil at Bryn Tawe enjoys as a member of our school family.
