Nursery pupils are registered for admission in the February previous to the September they are due to start. Reception pupils are registered for admission in the November previous to the September they are due to start.

Early Entitlement: This is a government funded project. It provides an opportunity to learn by fun and play in a safe, secure and stimulating environment. Qualified staff will provide a variety of activities and experiences in all areas of a child’s learning and development. Early Entitlement pupils start school in Ysgol Llanarmon Dyffryn Ceiriog and Ysgol Pontfadog in the January or April, the term after their 3rd birthday. The Early Entitlement class attend for two and a half hours from Monday to Thursday. At this present time Early Entitlement Education is only available in Ysgol Pontfadog and Ysgol Llanarmon. Children in Glyn Ceiriog can currently access Early Entitlement Education in Cylch Meithrin which is now based at Ysgol Cynddelw.
Nursery: Nursery Education is provided for two and a half hours per day Monday to Friday. Children are admitted to Nursery in the September following their third birthday.
Reception: Children are admitted in the September following their fourth birthday.
As a federation of schools we are used to admitting pupils mid-year and they are integrated within the appropriate age group.
Having reached the end of Year Six the pupils transfer to Ysgol Dinas Bran, Llangollen or Ysgol Morgan Llwyd, Wrexham. The good link which exists between the Federation and the Secondary Schools make the transfer at 11 years of age an easy one for the children.
Visiting the schools
Parents are welcome to visit the schools. Appointments to see teachers are best made outside of school hours as an impromptu visit may disrupt a class lesson.
Prospective parents are invited to contact the school to arrange a visit during school hours, not only to see the Head and staff, but also to sample the working atmosphere of the school.
