Croeso, welcome.  It is with great pleasure that I take this opportunity to introduce you to Ysgol Emrys ap Iwan. 


We are a school with high aspirations for all learners both in terms of their academic performance and their personal development.


We want the best for all our learners.  This means the fulfilment of their academic potential and also the development of an individual able to play their part in society. This is achieved by a balance of challenge and support for each individual learner.


We offer a purposeful and well-ordered learning environment, a progressive curriculum, high quality teaching and excellent facilities. Classroom learning is supported by a variety of additional activities and clubs as well as our ever popular opportunities to learn away from school.


We are proud of our school.  We are on a journey to be the best we can be supported by our motto to ‘Dare to Achieve’ in all that we do.
