Our main Primary Schools are:

When you transfer to Bryn Hafren you will be placed in a class – tutor group, you will have friends from your feeder Primary School in your class but you will meet lots of new friends.


We know that your main concerns will be:


• Friends – you will be with other girls from your Primary school but you will make many new friends in the first few days.


• Getting Lost – you will have a map to help you find your way around, staff and current pupils will help as well!


• Food – the canteen has a huge range of hot and cold meals and snacks, they also have “themed Fridays” which are fun and you can experience different food if you wish.


• Homework – you will not have to spend every evening doing homework, teachers will only give you work you are able to do, the main request is that you just try!

We also have pupils from St Helens Primary School and several Cardiff Primary Schools.


Bryn Hafren works with your Primary Schools a lot so that pupils and teachers know each other well.
