Welcome to Ysgol Bryn Castell!




Ysgol Bryn Castell (YBC) is a community day special school which provides education for pupils aged 7 to 19 years old with complex Behavioural, Emotional and Social Difficulties (BESD) including Autism alongside specific learning difficulties and other additional learning needs.


We are a caring, small school that is able to offer an independent package of support for pupils to enable them to achieve and enjoy their schooling. For many pupils, their admission to YBC can represent the start of a positive learning experience; which many pupils may not have encountered for a significant period of time. At YBC we encourage all pupils to get back into learning; we want them to take responsibility for their learning, and to become resilient, resourceful and reflective young people.


We want to create a school environment where children are safe and secure, where they enjoy their learning and have the opportunity to develop their talents. We want to provide a stimulating curriculum that encourages curiosity and values independent thought. All our staff are committed to these aims and continually strive to provide the highest quality education we can for our pupils. All staff value the quality of teaching and the strong pastoral care of our pupils and are dedicated to doing their best for all the children in the school. They look to develop a constructive relationship with Parents/Carers and other stakeholders so that we can genuinely work together to help and support all pupils to achieve their best: ‘Together we can achieve …’
