The Grounds

The School stands in the middle of a 6 acre site with panoramic views of the welsh countryside. As a result, the garden and grounds are a central part of the school and the school ethos.

We are very proud to be the first independent school in Wales to have been awarded the Eco Schools Green Flag. The children get fully involved in the practical aspects of sustainability, and the environment working in the garden is fun, informative and hands-on!

Each spring the children plant a variety of vegetables and flowers in the raised beds. They incubate chicken eggs and watch them hatch and grow. Nature also enters the classroom in a myriad other ways; hatching frogspawn; the tallest sunflower competition; growing cress for our sandwiches to name a few!

We have an on-going tree planting programme as part of our carbon offset initiative. This includes native hardwood species, willow arches and a thriving orchard. Part of the playing field is a wild flower meadow. With its meandering paths, dens and camps it is used as a teaching resource, outside classroom and is also a favourite place for the children to play, relax and unwind.
