Bryn Elian Governors

Governors play an important role in the life and management of the school; and we are fortunate at Ysgol Bryn Elian to have a group of governors who are committed to taking forward the aims and objectives of the school and to help every child achieve their potential.

Governors are volunteers who give of their time and expertise in order to support the school, its staff and pupils and to promote Ysgol Bryn Elian in the local and wider community. We find it very rewarding being part of such a successful and innovative school and take huge pride in the continued success of our students.

Foundation Status

Governors respect and value their responsibilities and accountability both as individuals and corporately. The day-to-day management of the school is devolved and delegated to the Head teacher and her team of staff.

As a Foundation School the Governors:

Directly manage all mainstream admissions, as they are the Admissions Authority for the school. This means that parents and carers must apply directly to Ysgol Bryn Elian to secure a place. Please see the Admissions section of the website for more details or contact the school direct.

Hold the land and buildings of the school in trust
