Croeso i Ysgol Bryn Alyn
Welcome to our Virtual Open Event for class of 2026!
Croeso i’n Digwyddiad Agored Rhithiol ar gyfer dosbarth 2026!
Visiting a school is usually about meeting the school community, about getting to know the staff who will be supporting, guiding and nurturing your child’s dreams and ambitions. While this is not quite possible in the present climate the YBA Community would still like to get to know you. We hope the following videos will give you a flavour of what YBA can offer your child.
Our Virtual Open Event aims to give you an introduction to YBA, but there is still plenty to discuss and staff and students are looking forward to speaking to you in person. If you would like to meet any members of staff online or speak to them on the phone, please complete the form and our admin staff would be delighted to make the arrangements with you.
On the 21st of October we held a Webinar so that you could talk to the head teacher Mrs Slinn, and also some of our dedicated teachers here at YBA. We have put a copy for you to catch up on some of the YBA news and information that was discussed.
Ysgol Bryn Alyn is a vibrant community school which supports every child to achieve their dreams. We hope you enjoy the series of videos we have prepared for you and very much look forward to welcoming you in person.
Gobeithio y gwnewch chi fwynhau’r ffilmiau rydyn ni wedi’u gwneud yn arbennig ar eich cyfer chi.
If you have any further questions, please put these into our questionnaire and we will endeavour to help by posting a video later on this term with the answers from our current pupils and staff.
