Information about our school

Ysgol Llanbedr is a small rural English language Church of Wales primary school. It was founded in 1829 and moved out of the village to the current site in 1864. It is ideally situated in open countryside with beautiful surroundings overlooked by Moel Famau and Moel Fenlli in the heart of the Vale of Clwyd. We have excellent outdoor facilities which include a large playing field, Multi-use Games pitch, wildlife and reflection gardens, a school vegetable garden  and a dedicated Forest Schools area. We make extensive use of all of these facilities to extend and enhance our children's learning and Well-being.

In the school building we have 3 main classrooms for Foundation Phase, Lower Key Stage Two and Upper Key Stage Two. We recently had a new kitchen extension built. All school meals are cooked on-site by our school cook.

Directions to school: The school is easily accessible from the village of Llanbedr. Follow the road in a northerly direction beyond the village itself before taking the first turning on your right to follow the signpost for Hirwaen. The school is situated approximately 300 yards on the left with its own car park just beyond the main building. The main entrance is located at the front of the school. Please follow the signs from the main car park.
