On 1st March 2023, parents/carers received confirmation of their child’s school place for September 2023.
In readiness for September 2023 and to help us prepare for your child starting at Ysgol y Grango, we politely request that you click into the links below to access and complete the Data Consent Form and Medical Form.

If you need to update this with the primary school then please do so as a matter of urgency.
A Warm Welcome from Mrs Povey, Year 7 Progress Leader & Transition Coordinator
I am delighted for our new Year 7 learners to join the Ysgol Y Grango family and I am really looking forward to meeting them all very soon. This is an exciting next stage of your child’s learning journey and working in partnership with our families is at the heart of the transition process.
At Ysgol Y Grango we acknowledge the transition to high school is a significant milestone in a child’s life. Therefore, please take comfort from the fact that you and your child will be supported throughout the journey by our highly experienced and dedicated pastoral team.
The wellbeing of all learners is paramount to everything that we do, and to ensure a smooth transition we work very closely with all the primary schools, Year 6 learners and specialist services.
We offer a range of transition days and activities for your child to participate in which include meeting new staff, team building and familiarising themselves with a new building and surroundings.
To find out any further details about the school please refer to the links in the Transition Information Pack for Parents/Carers below. We are currently reviewing our School Uniform requirements and updated information will be released at the end of May 2023.
We operate an open-door policy and if at any point you would like further help or advice, please do not hesitate to contact me via the email address: Transition75@hwbcymru.net
If you have any enquires regarding Additional Learning Needs please contact Mrs K Sharpe, our ALNCO via the email address: SharpeK12@Hwbcymru.net
The team and I look forward to meeting you and your child in the summer term!
Mrs Z Povey
Year 7 Progress Leader & Transition Coordinator
