Currently, there are 141 pupils on roll. All pupils have a statement of special educational needs (SEN). Thirty-six per cent of pupils are eligible for free school meals.

The main school site is situated in Tonteg and provides education for primary and secondary aged pupils. In September 2014, the school opened a satellite site at Buarth y Capel in Ynysybwl. This site provides specialist support for pupils aged 14-19 with autistic spectrum disorder.

At the time of the inspection, the headteacher is also employed as a temporary executive headteacher of another special school in the local authority.
