Craig-y-Nos School is one of the longest established independent schools in Wales. Founded in 1920 as a boys' preparatory school, it has evolved in more recent years into an independent primary school educating boys and girls from the age of 2 - 11.

In 1983 the school moved from its central Swansea location to the delightful rural setting of Clyne Common, at the entrance to the Gower Peninsula and an area of outstanding natural beauty. It now stands on a three acre site on the B4436 between Mayals and Bishopston, approximately five miles west of the city centre. (National Grid reference: 594 894)

  • Infants three classes for children aged 5, 6 and 7.
  • Juniors four classes for children aged 8, 9, 10 and 11.

All pupils attend swimming during the year and from Infant 3 upwards Games is timetabled for Friday afternoons.

 In the Nursery class children have their fourth birthday during the year. Nursery hours are 9:15am - 3:10pm with an early and late school facility from 8am - 5:30pm. Many children attend for two or three days to begin and then often progress to four or five days by the end of the year, in preparation for full time compulsory school. Full time attendance is possible from the beginning of the year.

In Nursery the children acquire, through a wide range of learning experiences, the various concepts prerequisite to the understanding of mathematical and linguistic teaching they will receive in the Infant classes.

The Nursery class provides an environment in which children learn sharing, caring for and relating to their peers as well as opportunities for creativity through activities such as painting, modelling, montage, frieze making and puppetry.

They Nursery class lays a firm foundation upon which the children can build as they progress towards the more formal learning situations of primary education.
