On the behalf of the pupils, staff and governors, welcome to the Penmaes Website.

Ysgol Penmaes, situated in the cathedral town of Brecon, is a busy, forward-looking school that provides high quality specialist education for pupils aged 3-19 with a wide range of learning difficulties.

The Penmaes campus, completed in September 2006, includes a purpose built school, a small respite unit (Golwg y Camlas) and a residential unit for pupils on the Autistic Spectrum (Golwg y Bannau). These integrated facilities provide pupils with the very best learning opportunities, experiences and resources which support the school as a centre of excellence.

We are fully committed to promoting independence and ownership of learning within a safe, caring, stimulating and vibrant environment where everyone is encouraged to reach their full potential.  We hope that you find our website informative and we invite you to visit the school to experience its excellence at first hand.




We look forward to welcoming you.

Ms Karen Gittins - Headteacher
