The lower department building surrounds an open, padded patio area and consists of 4 large teaching areas and a large hall that is shared by the whole school. The organisation of these areas reflects the learning needs of the differing age groups taught. We refer to these teaching areas Nursery/Reception/Year 1/Year 2 Bases, as well as outdoor areas for each classroom. In addition, we have an external classroom and a Community Room.


The Upper school department building has a large hall shared by the whole school. Off the hall are 3 wings that house Year 3 (7-8 year old - Gwindy), Year 4 (8-9 year old - Pandy), Year 5 and Year 6 (9-11 year old - Celyn).
