Our school motto is ‘Learning Together, Reaching Higher’. We welcome children, their parents and their families into our friendly, happy and hard-working environment, where respect for others and positive attitudes towards work and behaviour are encouraged and nurtured.
Ysgol Nannerch is a community focused school which recognises the importance of working in partnership with children, parents and the community in order that each child can be given the opportunity to develop their lifelong learning skills to enable them to reach their own unique potential.
Our school values are based on those of honesty, trust and respect for one another. As a school community we strongly believe that every child can achieve and will strive to do their best within an environment which promotes every aspect of their well being.
