Welcome to Ysgol Bryn Elian
We are a well-ordered successful and happy foundation school, located on a spacious site with excellent facilities. The school's beautiful coastal location provides a quiet and attractive setting for the students to enjoy the full range of our amenities.
We have long been recognised for the care and individual attention given to our children. Having 900 pupils across the age range of 11 to 18, we are a medium sized comprehensive school in comparison to some other secondary schools ehich gives us the advantage of knowing our children well and being able to help them become successful members of this and the wider community. Our children talk fondly of the teachers here and the quality of care that they receive. They have a real sense of pride in being associated with Bryn Elian because we all see ourselves as a family school.
Further information about Bryn Elian can be found in our prospectus along with our extensive range of courses in our school prospectus and sixth form prospectus
