At Ysgol San Sior we provide a stimulating and challenging curriculum, empowering children to think for themselves and to exceed their expectations; realising the limitations of the classroom as a learning environment and the opportunities that the wider environment holds.
Our surroundings provide a rich and diverse learning environment that complements the work of the indoor classroom. The school goldfish has been replaced by chameleons, monitor lizards, chickens, tortoises, geckos of every variety and exotic frogs the size of saucers.
We aim to equip all pupils including the next generation of Steve Backshalls, David Attenboroughs and Iolo Williamses with the skills and knowledge to allow them to become responsible and active citizens as they proceed onto the next stage of their education.
Our school was featured twice on BBC Countryfile and last year we produced over 20,000 eggs (since we started the enterprise in 1994 we have produced over 77,000 eggs!) We are the only school in the UK that are currently registered to sell eggs in shops. WWF have shortlisted us as Green Ambassador School of the Year 2017 and we were shortlisted Daily Post Primary School of the Year 2017. This Year HRH Prince Charles visited the school to see for himself what makes our school so unusual and awarded the school with the WWF Green Team of the Year 2018.
