Croeso i Ysgol Y Castell
Welcome to our school in the heart of rural, coastal Carmarthenshire.
In our secure, happy, stimulating environment we bring out the best in everyone!
Ysgol y Castell aims to provide a caring, happy and respectful environment which allows pupils to realise their full potential, both academically and socially. Individual qualities such as independence of thought and self discipline. We also stress the importance of respect for others, team work and community spirit. This is reflected in our motto: Care, Share, Believe and Achieve. We aim to equip our pupils with the knowledge, skills and values to be responsible, well-rounded, caring members of not just our local society but of the world. Our children are encouraged to respect and value similarities and differences and to be curious about other communities, countries and beliefs.
The purpose of this website is to provide an interesting insight into our school, to convey important information, and to celebrate the excellent work produced by pupils and staff.
I do hope that our website will aid communication and that you will find it both useful and informative. If there is anything you would like to see included please let us know.
Choosing the right school for your child is vitally important. We all want the very best education for our children, but we also want our children to be safe, happy and to feel secure. We believe we offer all these things. We pride ourselves on our academic results but we are equally proud of our caring, happy and friendly school ethos.
We place great emphasis on developing a strong partnership between home and school, as it is through working together in an atmosphere of mutual respect and support that we can provide what is best for our children, in order that they may be happy, enriched and fulfil their potential.
I believe we are an extremely effective school and all the staff are committed to preparing your child for a lifelong journey of discovery and learning.
