Croeso! Welcome to Cwmrhydyceirw Primary School. We are one of the largest primary schools in Swansea with over 550 pupils and we are situated in Morriston on the east side of Swansea. We are very proud of our school and everyone who works (and plays!) within it. Selecting the correct school for your child is a vital decision and we feel that we offer a wealth of opportunities for your child to develop a variety of skills and talents during their time with us.

Our school has had a very successful track record over the years and we were delighted in April 2018 to be judged by Estyn as being ‘Excellent’ in all five inspection areas – the first English medium primary school in Wales to achieve this under the new Estyn framework.

We want your child to be happy and flourish with us at ‘CRC’ so if you have any queries then please contact me at the school and I will be happy to answer any questions that you may have.

Latest School Update

School will return for our pupils on Friday 3rd September. It appears at this time that the use of ‘bubbles’ and staggered start and finish times are coming to an end from the beginning of the Autumn Term,

I will send out a Parentmail before we restart outlining how school will look on its return and the new timings during the next few weeks but I hope that we be returning to a normal school day for all our pupils.

Many thanks,

Mr. Casker, July 24th 2021.
