Croeso i Ysgol Gynradd Porthcawl ~Welcome to Porthcawl Primary School!

We are a small and friendly primary school set in extensive grounds.  We have just under 200 children from 3 to 11 years old, including our own full time Nursery.  We are located in the Victorian seaside town of Porthcawl and are close to several sandy beaches.


We want everyone in our school community to feel cared for and supported whilst achieving their full potential.  We believe strongly in developing the whole child and therefore focus on relationships and wellbeing whilst continuing to pursue excellent academic standards.  We have high expectations for all our children and provide high quality teaching and learning experiences.


We have achieved the Welsh Government School Categorisation of 1A Green and have also had a very successful Estyn Inspection (please see report below).


We know that close links between teachers and parents are essential.  We want the community to become fully involved in the life of the school and look forward to everyone working happily together during their time at Porthcawl Primary School.


If you would like to find out more about us, please feel free to make an appointment to visit.  We are extremely proud of our school and love to show people around.


We look forward to seeing you soon.
