Our School

History of Pontnewydd Primary School.


The school dates back to 1955, when Pontnewydd Junior Mixed School was opened as the first school to serve the still being built Cwmbran New Town. It was planned as an integral part of the neighbourhood, and still contributes to the cultural and recreational life of the area by providing a base for the local community.

The old Infant School moved into its present building in 1967, and the Junior and Infant Schools were amalgamated in 1983 to become Pontnewydd Primary School.

Today, the school is a large primary school with a nursery attached.
