School Description

Ysgol Gynradd Glancegin is situated on the Maesgeirchen estate in the city of Bangor, in Gwynedd local authority. All pupils come from the school’s natural catchment area. There are 249 pupils between 3 and 11 years old on roll, including 40 nursery age pupils who attend on a part-time basis. Welsh is the main language and medium of the school. Over a three-year period, the average percentage of pupils who have been eligible for free school meals is around 36%. This is significantly higher than the national average of 18%. The school has identified around 33% of its pupils as having special educational needs. Again, this is significantly higher than the national figure of 21%. Many pupils come from English-speaking homes and only around 17% speak Welsh at home. The school was last inspected by Estyn in February 2013, and the current headteacher was appointed in January 2016. Further information is available from the Welsh Government My Local School website at the link below. http://mylocalschool.wales.gov.uk/Schools/SchoolSearch?lang=en 1 A report on Ysgol Glancegin March 2020 Summary The school is a caring community that incorporates the principles of its motto, ‘Nurture, inspire, thrive’, successfully. The headteacher and staff have high expectations of pupils, particularly in promoting their positive attitudes to learning. As a result, most pupils make good progress from their starting points during their time at the school. However, pupils do not develop their Welsh oracy, reading or writing skills successfully enough to become confident bilingual learners. Across the school, teachers provide lessons that engage pupils’ interest successfully. They use a range of different resources skilfully to prepare interesting activities for pupils in the classrooms and the outdoor areas. The headteacher and his management team, which has been revised recently, have a positive effect on the school’s work. They have created an effective professional learning community that encourages staff to reflect on their performance conscientiously and act positively on their findings. The school’s performance is monitored through a wide range of self-evaluation activities. In the best cases, the school identifies its strengths and addresses areas for improvement successfully.

Pupil heat map key


This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the Pupil Level Annual School Census collected by the Welsh Government. The data tells us where pupils lived at the time of the last Pupil Census (released annually in July).

Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with siblings already at the school, high priority pupils and selective and/or religious admissions) but we may have removed statistical ‘outliers’ with more remote postcodes that do not reflect majority admissions.

For some schools, the heat map may be a useful indicator of the catchment area but our heat maps are not the same as catchment area maps. Catchment area maps, published by the school or local authority, are based on geographical admissions criteria and show actual cut-off distances and pre-defined catchment areas for a single admission year.

This information is provided as a guide only. The areas from which pupils are admitted to a school can change from year to year to reflect the number of siblings and pupils admitted under high priority admissions criteria.

3 steps to help parents gather catchment information for a school:

  1. Look at our heat maps. They give a useful indicator of the general areas that admit pupils to the school. This visualisation is based on all attending pupils present at the time of the last School Census.
  2. Use the link to the Local Authority Contact (above) to find catchment area information based on a single admission year. This is very important if you are considering applying to a school.
  3. On each school page, use the link to visit the school website and find information on individual school admissions criteria. Geographical criteria are only applied after pupils have been admitted on higher priority criteria such as Looked After Children, SEN, siblings, etc.

See Pupil heat maps FAQs for more information about the source of pupil heat map data.
