Welcome to Ysgol Bro Famau

On behalf of the pupils, staff and governors, I would like to welcome you to our new website.

We are a rural, federated, twin site school and very lucky to be situated in an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’ in the Clwydian Hills in Denbighshire.

We are very proud of our ‘Caring and Sharing’ ethos and believe we provide a stimulating and exciting environment for our children with very strong links with our local communities.

We have high expectations of and for the children in our care and aim to provide them with the best possible start to their school lives.

We actively foster close partnerships between home, school and community, encouraging all to be involved in the many aspects of school life at Ysgol Bro Famau.

We hope that our website will keep you up to date with the work and activities happening in and around our very busy, unique school.

Mrs. Elizabeth Knight
