About Us

A warm welcome to Ysgol Bro Gwaun

Ysgol Bro Gwaun is an 11-16, bilingual secondary school. We offer subjects through the medium of English and Welsh, and are set on a beautiful site overlooking Fishguard Harbour, against the backdrop of the Preseli Hills. At present, there are 600+ pupils on roll.

Pupils are from a broad social and cultural spectrum, which gives the school a vibrant atmosphere. The area has a complex linguistic mix – the Welsh heartland in the Preseli Hills, Newport, Strumble and especially the Gwaun Valley, has retained much of its Welsh culture and language. As a consequence, both English and Welsh are used extensively throughout the school. Fishguard Bay has for centuries been an entry point to Britain for the Southern Irish and many Irish families have settled in the locality, giving the area an unique mixture of cultures.

Our purpose build £14 million school offers the perfect mix between traditional and innovative learning spaces, creating a true 21st Century learning environment. Our facilities are exceptional, including our shared leisure facilities with our neighbour, Fishguard Leisure Centre.
