Welcome to Ysgol Gyfun Ystalyfera


This is a truly exciting time of your life and so many of us look back on our 16 - 19 period as one of the happiest of our youth. You now have the choice of your learning pathway - what subjects to study and as importantly what interests you wish to follow and develop during your sixth form life.

At Ystalyfera Sixth Form you have the best possible opportunity to follow your choice. Canolfan Gwenallt students regularly perform at the highest standard in national examinations and their busy and exciting lives as school prefects and leaders continue to astound us! Students from Ystalyfera leave us to study at the highest level in Welsh and British Universities, and over the past few years we have secured a place for nearly every one of our students at one of their chosen courses within Higher Education.

We are particularly proud of the choices available for you at 16+ - a broad choice of traditional, BTEC and vocational courses. There are over 30 options choices - from Physics to Welsh, Psychology to Public Services. Students will also study for the Welsh Baccalaureate which is an excellent vehicle to gain qualifications in all of the Key Skills as well as diverse opportunities to work together on different projects.

How to apply
