Croeso / Welcome to Ysgol Penrhyn Dewi VA

Ysgol Penrhyn Dewi Church in Wales VA School is the first Church in Wales secondary phase school to open since the 1920’s and it is the first 3 to 16 VA Church in Wales school in the world. We are so fortunate to occupy such amazing locations in St Davids and Solva and the opportunities our school offers young people and their families are boundless. The Cathedral, as well as being a focus for our worship provides a unique and invaluable learning resource and classroom.

Our 3 – 16 through-school status offers us exciting and innovative learning opportunities where primary and secondary aged children have the opportunity to learn from and work alongside each other, fostering a sense of family and belonging. We are keen to exploit these opportunities wherever we can and create a seamless transition between Primary and Secondary.

We have the highest aspirations for our school and our pupils; creating a positive, stimulating environment where everyone is supported, empowered and challenged to achieve their potential. We are fully inclusive and work as a beacon for our community, working together for the good of all.

We place teaching and learning at the heart of all we do, and the sharing of phase and subject expertise amongst colleagues ensures we have high expectations and aspirations for the progress of all our pupils.
