About Us

Ysgol Estyn is situated in the village of Hope, alongside the A550 from Wrexham to Hawarden, with easy access from Mold, Wrexham and Chester.  The school has open views of Hope mountain and the surrounding countryside.

It is an English medium school for pupils aged 3 to 11 and Welsh is taught as a second language.  Classes are organised in mixed ability peer groups and no class has more than 30 pupils.

Our Nursery department is housed in a purpose built unit at the rear of the school and currently offers 5 morning sessions a week to children who have reached the age of 3.  The local Playgroup offers up to 5 sessions a week on the same site during the afternoon.

School meals are provided for staff and pupils.  They are cooked on site in our own kitchen and served in our canteen.  Pupils choosing to bring packed lunches are supervised in classrooms.

At the age of 11, pupils traditionally transfer to Castell Alun in the village, although parents are given the opportunity to express a preference for other high schools if they wish.
