Our school was opened on June 7th 1999 by Allan Rogers MP. The school is a brand new single-storey building which is situated in a beautiful setting, at the base of the mountain from which it derives its name. The children come from the four nearby villages of Blaenrhondda, Blaen-y-cwm, Tynewydd and Treherbert. Please feel free to look around our website, and don’t forget to e-mail the school with any suggestions or questions you may have.

The vision for what the school is aspiring to achieve, set in the context in which it works.
‘At Pen Pych we will provide a holistic educational experience for both child and adult alike, where the fundamentals of Education, Care and Community can work together for the benefit of all.’

The Pen Pych General Aims say that ‘it follows that the child’s time in school should incorporate within it opportunities to display whatever abilities and talents they possess’. ‘United in Work and Play’.

In the words of the children:
‘In Pen Pych Primary School we are united in work and play. Learning, loving, smiling together in a special way’. (School Council 2015)
