Croeso Pennaeth - Headteacher's Welcome


Dysgu'n Hapus - Learning Happy 


Hello and a very warm welcome to Tongwynlais Primary

We have tried to  include all the information we think that you are most likely to need but if there is something that you need, and you don't see it here, please just contact the school office on 029 20810383. Mrs Woods is always glad to help.


Tongwynlais Primary is the partner school of our neighbour, Coryton Primary School and together the schools form the Pear Tree Federation. The name  comes from the historic Pear Tree farm that stood exactly midway between the two schools - and would now be right in the middle of junction 32 between the A470 and the M4 - if it was still standing. The two schools legally federated in March 2018 having worked in collaboration for about 18 months prior to that. We share one Governing Body which represents both schools. The Chair of Governors is Mike Jones Pritchard.


Tongwynlais Primary School is a warm and happy place where we care about every child and  their families, as part of our wider school community.  We want our children to receive an excellent education but also to feel happy, safe and valued in the time in school with us.


I am the federation headteacher and I share my time overseeing both schools. The federation deputy is Miss Claire Francis and the assistant head, based at Tongwynlais, is Mrs Burge and at least one of us is always available at school to help you.


Kind regards


Mr Gareth James

Pear Federation Headteacher
