"Y Byd i'n Disgyblion a Disgyblion i'n Byd"

Ysgol Brynrefail is a medium sized rural community comprehensive school located at the centre of the primary school catchment at the foot of Snowdon. These schools include Bethel, Cwm y Glo, Waunfawr,
Deiniolen, Llanberis, Llanrug and Penisarwaun. These schools have essentially the same sort of environment so that newcomers to Ysgol Brynrefail will meet other pupils who come from similar backgrounds.

At present 786 pupils attend the school ensuring that it is not too large for everyone to get to know one another in a friendly and homely atmosphere. Therefore, transferring to Ysgol Brynrefail from one of the primary schools is not a frightening experience and new pupils soon settle down. Indeed frequent visitors and strangers alike comment on the warm, courteous, Welsh atmosphere as being one of the school's main features. New pupils should not be concerned. However, if a problem does crop up your child can immediately ask for help from any member of staff.

The school celebrated its centenary in September 2000 and the school was highly praised
in the Inspection in November 2006.
