Colwyn Bay lies in an area that is rich in culture and history and enjoys a spectacular setting between the mountains of the Snowdonia National Park and the Irish Sea. Castles, crags, beaches and cities such as Chester, Liverpool and Manchester are on our doorstep, and we make the most of our surroundings to enrich the educational experience of all our pupils.
Our extra-curricular programme puts great emphasis on working in teams, whether on the water or up the mountains, and is designed to broaden our pupils’ horizons and give them the chance to discover themselves through new interests, to make firm friends and to appreciate the environment in which they find themselves.
