Welsh Medium Education

Welsh-medium education provides opportunities for children and young people to achieve fluency in the Welsh language through studying a broad range of subjects and disciplines in Welsh. Your child’s English skills will also be developed in English lessons and through experiencing some aspects of the curriculum in English.

Monmouthshire maintain two Welsh-medium primary schools located in Abergavenny (Ysgol Gymraeg Y Fenni) and Caldicot (Ysgol Y ffin)

For secondary education, we have developed close links with neighbouring authorities, in particular Torfaen County Council with Ysgol Gyfun Gwynllyw. This means that Welsh-medium education is available at secondary level to the children within our county.  There will also be a new secondary school opening in Newport on the site of the current Duffryn secondary school for pupils living in the south of the county and attending Ysgol Y Ffin.

Children wishing to be educated through the medium of Welsh will receive free home-to-school transport to their nearest welsh medium establishment.

You can also find information and news about what’s happening in our primary schools by visiting the Monmouthshire grid for learning web site. 

More information about Welsh medium education in Wales can be found on the Welsh Government website
