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 950 pupils across the age range of 11 to 18, we are a medium sized comprehensive school in comparison to some other secondary schools which 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.

Committed to Safeguarding

We as a school are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expect all staff an volunteers to share this commitment.

We are also proud of the fact that we are a lead school for CaBan, an initial teacher Teacher Education partnership between Bangor and Chester Universities. Under this partnership, we as a school will have an integral role in teaching tomorrow's teachers and working closely with the CaBan partnership on 'growing tomorrow's teachers together'.
