We work together in a close partnership with our Cluster primary schools:
Summer Festival for Yr 5
We invite every pupil in Year 5 to spend three days with us at Ystalyfera during June / July each year working on a special themed project. Each Festival comes to an end with a special informal Award ceremony – when we invite all the parents to enjoy and celebrate their work with us.
Open Evening & Prospectus
We hold our first Open Evening at the end of September for the pupils and parents of Year 6. You will receive a copy of the school prospectus and enjoy a tour of the school to visit several of our key departments.
Year 6 & 7 Question Time!
Each year, we take pupils from Year 7 back to their former Primary School to hold a “Question Time” session with Year 6. This is an invaluable opportunity for Year 6 to ask any and every question they may have on the whole transition experience.
Vocal & Primary Proms
Every year we visit the Liberty Stadium to hold our Vocal Proms – an united choir of over 300 excellent young voices – it comes as no surprise that we are invited again for the coming year – to sing the Ospreys to yet another victory! We also invite every young instrumentalist to join Ysgol Gyfun Ystalyfera’s excellent orchestra for an annual Primary proms experience – a fantastic concert awaits!
June Open Day & Evening
Each June, we invite Year 6 to join us for a day in their new registration class and to meet their Personal tutor for September. The pupils will spend the day with us, experiencing lessons and a “normal teaching day” at Ystalyfera. During the evening, parents are also invited to school for information sharing ands to meet their son/daughter’s Personal Tutor who will remain with their child during their time at Ystalyfera.
