Our School

Cwmtawe is a 11-16 comprehensive school based in Pontardawe, serving the upper Swansea valley. Originally created in 1969, the school previously occupied three different sites. It moved to its present site in 1996 and now offers accommodation and facilities which are second to none.

We are significantly over-subscribed in most year groups, with 1,260 pupils currently on roll. In addition to pupils within our natural catchment area, a growing number of parents actively choose to send their children to Cwmtawe from other areas of Neath Port Talbot, Swansea, Powys and Carmarthenshire. Preferred placements now account for nearly half our annual pupil intake.

The school prides itself on offering a modern education based on traditional values. The way that staff care for, guide and support pupils is a significant strength, as is the quality of teaching and learning which leads to outstanding outcomes.
