Welcome to Ysgol y Dderwen’s website. Ysgol y Dderwen is a Welsh medium school that is firmly rooted in the old town of Carmarthen. It provides high quality Welsh-medium education to over 350 pupils with English introduced in Year 3. This ensures that all the pupils leave the school competent and confident in their use of both languages and thoroughly prepared for the transition to Ysgol Gyfun Gymraeg Bro Myrddin. The school provides a range of rich educational experiences and prepares the pupils to become responsible bilingual citizens that respect each other, their peers, their heritage and their environment.
You are invited as parents to participate in all the school’s activities, and we look forward to a happy, successful and fruitful partnership during your child’s primary education.
