Clytha Primary School is sited on Bryngwyn Road and is very close to the city centre of Newport. The location on Bryngwyn Road is central to the Handpost area in the north and Clytha Park to the south, two of the most enviably thriving and vibrant residential and commercial communities in the city of Newport.
The school building itself dates from 1901. The lower building houses all the Foundation Phase classrooms, dedicated small group areas, a kitchen, the school hall, the head teacher’s office and the school support team’s office. The upper building consists of four Key Stage Two classrooms, a library and a small group area that we call ‘The Cwtch’.
We make the most of outdoor learning opportunities and our two hard play yards, Nursery play yard, Forest School area, Peace Garden and Reception canopy are in constant use.
