Croeso! Welcome to our Eco School web site.
Ysgol Penycae is a small community school in the Upper Swansea Valley. There are currently 55 children in the school between the ages of 4 - 11.
Penycae School, although situated next to the main A4067 road, is very lucky to have the most beautiful grounds. Behind the school is a large site comprising of an old oak wood. This has been developed into our "Outside Classroom". The hard work by the pupils, parents, staff and governors together with the National Park Authority has paid off and our grounds and our outside classroom, with its pond is used regularly. At the side of the school you will see our Key Hole Garden, built by parents. In this we grow fruit, vegetables and flowers. We have recently been awarded The Eco Schools Green Flag for the third time! We are the first school in Powys to achieve this. We pride ourselves on our Eco work, caring for the world and our health.
Welsh is taught as a second language but it is also used incidentally in the classrooms. Staff and pupils who speak the language do so naturally at Penycae.
