This is an exciting time to join Ysgol Aberconwy, a mixed 11-to-18 comprehensive school of over 1000 pupils. Set in its own extensive campus on the banks of the beautiful River Conwy, the school is situated in the medieval town of Conwy on the North Wales coast adjacent to the Snowdonia National Park. As a PFI School, we are exceptionally well resourced and maintained, and we have developed a significant reputation locally for the quality of our pastoral care as well as our academic success. Numbers in the school will have risen by 30% over the last five years in September, and we have developed specialist resource centres to support children with dyslexia, autism and other learning needs.
