Ty Gwyn Special School

"Learning To Achieve"



Welcome to our school!


Ty Gwyn supports pupils aged 3-19 with Autism and /or profound and complex needs. The school is federated with Riverbank and Woodlands High School within the western learning campus. We are proud that the school has been recognised as excellent by Estyn in our last inspection.

At Ty Gwyn School we pride ourselves on our positive, inclusive and welcoming ethos. This ethos has been recognised by investors in people who has awarded us the highest achieving Platinum Award.


“……..There is an unparalleled positive culture within the school which comes across in every interaction"



We believe that this culture is achieved by placing the pupils at the centre of everything we do.  Our vision Statement demonstrates this core value:  "We believe that every pupil should have the opportunity to learn and develop within an environment where they are happy, supported and challenged to achieve as much as possible.  We believe that every child has the right to an education of high quality where everyone is valued......"


Our school is a learning environment for all, and we are committed to supporting and developing our staff, families and carers as fully as possible.  We achieve this by providing fun, hands on experience by learning alongside our pupils, working together within multi-disciplinary teams, giving informal presentations and gaining recognised qualifications.

We hope that you find our website informative, and we invite you to visit our school to experience our innovative practice first hand.

Proud to announce that we are a Rights Respecting Silver School: Rights Aware.


Our recent Rights Respecting accreditation report said: 


"Importantly, it was clear that the school provides a child centred approach, so that every pupil regardless of learning need, background or barrier has access to a caring, inclusive, rights based learning environment. At the heart of this is Article 12 and enabling children and young people to communicate and have a voice."
