Our school is a mixed Primary and Nursery school. It is situated on the outskirts of the city centre in the long-established, commercial and industrial area which, historically, is linked with the dockland area of Newport. The Pillgwenlly area is entering a new era, with much redevelopment of its housing and commercial facilities. The area is being significantly improved with many attractive features which enhance the environment generally. The Newport Transporter Bridge presents an impressive backdrop on the horizon and it has been proudly adopted as our school logo.
The school was built in 1988 and it replaced 3 former primary schools and a nursery.
The Nursery has two main teaching areas which are linked by a large wet play area. Quiet rooms, kitchen, laundry, toilet and cloakroom areas are also housed in this section.
The main building has two storeys. The ground floor consists of an attractive foyer with an administration area, medical room and staff room. The large hall is used for a range of activities, including daily worship, P.E. and games, extra-curricular activities and as a dining hall.
The remaining ground floor accommodates 8 classrooms, some with adjoining focus task rooms. All classrooms have outside wet areas. The remaining two rooms on this floor are used as a Nurture room and a learning support classroom.
Our first floor offers 10 classrooms, a nurture classroom and a teachers resource base, as well as cloakrooms and toilet facilities.
We have a lift which offers a facility for children with physical/mobility needs and other general purposes.
