Welcome - Croeso 
Ysgol Penmaes

On the behalf of the pupils, staff and governors, Welcome to Ysgol  Penmaes.

Ysgol Penmaes, situated in the cathedral town of Brecon, is a busy, forward-looking school that provides high quality specialist education for pupils aged 3-19 with a wide range of complex Additional Learning Needs (ALN).

The Penmaes campus, completed in September 2006, includes a purpose built school, a small residential unit for pupils with Autistic Spectrum Conditions (Golwg y Bannau).


This provision provides pupils with the very best learning opportunities, experiences and resources which support the school as a centre of excellence.

In September 2021 Penmaes in collaboration with the Local Authority opened a satellite provision in Crossgates, Llandrindod Wells. This is a primary satellite provision that provides specialist education for pupils with ALN with trained staff all of whom are part of the Penmaes staffing team. All pupils at the provision are included on Penmaes roll. 

We are fully committed to promoting independence and ownership of learning within a safe, caring, stimulating and vibrant environment where everyone is encouraged to reach their full potential.  

I hope that you find the website informative and I invite you to visit the school to experience its excellence at first hand.


I along with the school community look forward to welcoming you.
