Welcome to Ysgol Griffith Jones
Our vision - Ysgol Griffith Jones aims to utilise evolving technologies as a vehicle to enhance learning without limits.
Ysgol Griffith Jones has excellent buildings and facilities. Housing a self-contained Nursery the provision available for the younger child is second to none. The large school hall, together with the permanent and moveable stage offer excellent facilities for drama work and school functions. The extensive playing fields provide an impressive play area as well as providing opportunities for a wide range of sporting activities. A large gymnasium - one of the very few in any Primary School in Carmarthenshire - affords the opportunity for all pupils to participate in movement, gymnastics, indoor athletics, dance etc. A new library was opened in April 2012 to support all pupils' reading requirements.
Ysgol Griffith Jones has two streams, a Welsh stream and an English stream.
Welsh Stream - Classes are taught through the medium of Welsh.
English Stream - Classes are taught mainly through the medium of English with Welsh taught as a second language. The school Nursery and Reception Classes have Welsh as the main medium instruction. From year 2 onwards, parents are given the choice of Welsh Stream or English Stream education.
All classes have children of mixed ability. Class sizes range from 20 - 30 pupils. A two year age range is usually the maximum for any one class but not always.
