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.

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 school catchment area guide for more information on 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 annual 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.

School level results for primary schools were not published by the Welsh Government in 2021. We give a summary star rating based on the last available data as a helpful indicator to parents. This is to be used as a guide only. You can view national level results including the percentage of pupils across Wales achieving the expected levels for the Foundation Phase (age 7) and at Key Stage 2 (age 11) here.

School Description

Ysgol Llywelyn is a large primary school on the southern outskirts of Rhyl, constructed in the 1950s within extensive grounds. Pupils come from a variety of backgrounds, ranging from relatively prosperous to economically disadvantaged. Around a fifth of families only remain in the area for a short period. Approximately 24% of pupils receive free school meals, which is above the local authority and national averages. There are currently 534 pupils in the school aged between three and 11, taught in 19 classes, seven of which contain a mixed age range. Pupils enter the early years unit on a part-time basis at the beginning of the year in which they are four. They move on to full-time education in reception the following September. The number on roll has declined steadily over the last few years. The school has identified around 24% of pupils as having additional learning needs, which is similar to the national average. A very few have a statement of special educational needs. There were 15 fixed-term exclusions in 2011-2012 involving seven pupils. No pupils use Welsh as a first language, but a very few speak another European language at home and receive support for English as an additional language. Very few are looked after by the local authority or come from an ethnic minority background. The school was last inspected in November 2006. The headteacher was appointed in September 2011. The individual school budget per pupil for Ysgol Llywelyn in 2012-2013 means that the budget is £3,578 per pupil. The maximum per pupil in the primary schools in Denbighshire is £9,659 and the minimum is £3,064. Ysgol Llywelyn is 45th out of the 52 primary schools in Denbighshire in terms of its school budget per pupil.

Ysgol Llywelyn Parent Reviews

Average Parent Rating

“This school was advertised as one that offers a welcoming atmosphere for parents and children”

Our children have been at this school for over 2 years: initially everyone was very helpful, and couldn't do enough to help, but recently things have not been so good. The Christmas fair was cancelled, and we as a family took the children to a ysgol Christchurch, where their cousin attends: it was an amazing atmosphere in comparison, plenty of festive spirit, and people were very welcoming. There are some teachers, who are helpful, but sadly we do not feel the headteacher is a very approachable person. The infant teachers are very pleasant, we have had no problems there, and the junior teachers are reasonable. We have actually tried to transfer the children from this school, but there are no places for both of them in another school. The school is quite large, and it gets busy at home-time: it is very hard to be a part of the school, despite having children that attend: some parents feel they are not welome, and with the recent changes to the school-granted for security purposes, it does look very fenced-in.
