Croeso and Welcome to Penrhiwceibr Primary School's Website.
We hope this website provides a helpful and informative glimpse into life at Penrhiwceibr Primary School. Our aim is to provide a happy, challenging and successful school environment. This enables each child in our care to achieve their full potential and become confident, independent and enthusiastic learners for life.
Our School itself is situated in a former mining community, with buildings on 3 levels separated by playgrounds and although the external appearance remains unchanged, the curriculum, resources, and expertise reflect the 21st Century.
