School Description

Ysgol Plas Brondyffryn is a local authority special school maintained by Denbighshire County Council. The school provides day and residential placements for pupils aged 3 to 19 with autism. Pupils are drawn from the whole of Denbighshire as well as from neighbouring local authorities across the North Wales region. The school is based on three sites in the town of Denbigh. There are 67 pupils of secondary school age at the main site in Park Street, 37 pupils at the primary setting in Rhyl Road and 19 secondary-aged pupils with more complex needs at Ty’r Ysgol in Nantglyn Road. The residential provision is situated alongside Ty’r Ysgol. All pupils have statements of special educational needs. Nearly all pupils have English as their home language. Around 30% of pupils are eligible for free school meals. There are currently the equivalent of 16 full-time teachers, including senior leaders, and 50 classroom support staff. The headteacher, who has been in post since 2010, is due to retire at the end of August 2016. At the time of the inspection, the governing body had appointed one of the assistant headteachers to the post of acting headteacher.

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.
