Our Primary Partners

"The school has excellent links with its partner primary schools. They work together to ensure that there is a strong continuity of wellbeing as pupils move from KS2 to KS3."

We are delighted to work very closely with five local Partner schools. At Cynffig the Transition of pupils from Key Stage 2 to Key Stage 3 is of the utmost importance.  As a school we are continually striving to nurture the positive primary partnerships, which exist with our associate primary schools. In geographical order they are: Cefn Cribwr, Mynydd Cynffig Primary, Pyle, Afon y Felin and Corneli. To be able to work so closely with five excellent and very high-performing schools is a privilege, and our partnership is highly productive.


Through out the school year visits take place, which are aimed at making future Year 7 pupils feel comfortable and confident in their future new surroundings.  It is our genuine desire that all pupils will experience a smooth transition, with continued personal and academic development for all.


Year 5 and 6 pupils are given numerous opportunities to experience a taste of ‘Comprehensive life’ through a number of initiatives which take place each year. Cynffig is always delighted to collaborate and share good practice with our Primary colleagues to secure and demonstrate progression from Key Stage 2 to Key Stage 3.
