Welcome to Ysgol y Castell, Caerphilly's website.
We are proud of our pupils and the high standards reached in the school. We offer a large range of extra curricular activities which enable the children to use their Welsh language skills outside the classroom.
"The school pays outstanding attention to bilingualism, Welsh culture and the heritage of Wales, and valuable opportunities are provided for promoting the Cwricwlwm Cymreig within a number of subjects. Learners' experiences are enriched by outstanding extra-curricular activities. This is an outstanding feature." ESTYN June 2010.
Our aim is to develop the whole child in a safe, happy and Welsh atmosphere. Bi-lingualism has been described as "living in a home with two windows," and we are privilaged to have proved the success of Welsh Medium Schools which brings us nearer the vision of a bi-lingual Wales.
As we face the challenges of the 21st century, we realize the importance of passing our inheritence on to the generations to come. "Children are the architects (for better or worse) of tomorrow's future!"
