Transferring from another secondary school

If your child is transferring from another secondary school, if at all possible we encourage you to contact the school in the first instance so that we can arrange for you to come in and visit the school and relevant staff members. Following this, the normal admission guidelines can be followed on Denbighshire’s website.

Welsh Language Immersion Scheme at Ysgol Glan Clwyd

The Welsh language immersion pilot scheme is currently available to pupils living in the community served by Ysgol Glan Clwyd who:-

  • have been educated through the medium of English at Primary stage; and/or
  • are latecomers to Welsh language at primary stage.

Pupils who opt to be educated through the medium of Welsh from Year 7 onwards are supported through intensive Welsh lessons in their Primary school from January through to May. They then spend the last 5 weeks of term at Ysgol Glan Clwyd. In Years 7 and 8, these pupils follow the whole curriculum through the medium of Welsh and are fully supported by specialist teachers. By the end of Year 8, the expectation is that the pupils will be fully bilingual.

For the purpose of oversubscription and transport eligibility, this provision is considered as expressing a preference for Welsh medium education.
