Our Warm and Welcoming School
Our staff, Governors and children always provide a warm welcome. Ysgol Estyn is a primary school in Hope which is a small village and community in Flintshire, north-east Wales. The village is located approximately 3 miles from the Wales-England border, on the course of the River Alyn, and less than 5 miles from Wrexham. It is predominantly an English speaking village.
At Ysgol Estyn we provide learning experiences for over 200 children from three to eleven years old. We offer Nursery provision in the morning sessions and wrap around care is provided by the local ABC Nursery. We also offer Breakfast Club and After School Club to all children. Pre school children are also welcome to join Playgroup which runs from our school in the afternoons. Our partners ABC Nursery also work with us to provide Holiday Club at our school during most of the school holidays.
Wellbeing is a central part of our ethos at Ysgol Estyn. We pride ourselves on being a child centred school. We strongly believe that children should enjoy a happy, fun, kind and caring environment. All achievements are celebrated and children are encouraged to be individuals.
At Ysgol Estyn we teach predominantly through the medium of English, but also promote our Welsh heritage and the Welsh language. The home language of nearly all pupils is English. Children celebrate the Welsh language, culture and heritage throughout their work and through dedicated events such as ‘Our Wonderful Wales’ week. During their time in KS2, children have the opportunity to attend residential trips to Cardiff to fully immerse themselves in the Welsh heritage. Also to PGL outdoor adventure centre, where they are given the opportunity to step out of their comfort zone, face challenges and team build with their friends.
