Learning for Life!

Welcome to Ysgol Yr Hafod!

Welcome to Ysgol yr Hafod, Johnstown.

On behalf of staff, governors and pupils, it is my great pleasure to welcome you to our lovely school.

In September 2023, we moved in to our newly extended and refurbished building and we are absolutely delighted with our new school!

At Ysgol yr Hafod, Johnstown, children are placed at the centre of everything we do.  Pupil voice is central to our curriculum. We have a talented, dedicated and enthusiastic team of staff and together, we strive to ensure our school is a safe and happy environment where every child is valued and given every opportunity to be the best that they can be.

We believe that the environment in which they learn should be an inspirational one. We are extremely proud of the learning environment we have created in our new building. It is a place where children can thrive, use and apply their skills, follow their interests and have high aspirations.
