The school is proud of its tradition, which extends over forty years. During this period we are proud of our former students’ successes in the sporting arena, in the Arts and in a range of vocational domains. Our students’ regular and continued success in external examinations, as well as within a host of extra curricular fields is testament to that excellent tradition.
Ysgol Gyfun Ystalyfera is a close knit and friendly school, and we are rightly proud of the caring and supportive relationship which exists between staff and students. We aim that our students grow into responsible and ambitious citizens, who are tolerant, respectful and compassionate towards others.
“Dysgu Gorau – Dysgu Byw”, (“The Best Learning, Learning to Live” or “The Best Teaching, Teaching to Live”) our school motto, reminds us of the need to prepare our young people to face a range of social and personal challenges in their lives. Being fluent in both Welsh and English allows our students to enjoy the rich cultures of both languages, as well as enhancing the career opportunities available to them in the local community, within Wales and the wider European market.
It is a privilege to provide our pupils with the best possible educational experiences, in a wide range of academic and vocational routes. We pride ourselves in the personal support that every pupil at Ysgol Gyfun Ystalyfera enjoys as a member of our school community.
Whatever your relationship with Ystalyfera, I welcome you to our website, and should you wish to discuss any aspect of the work of the school, or should you wish to visit us, please do not hesitate to contact us!
