The modern school was formed when the former Pwllheli Grammar School and the Frondeg Secondary Modern Schools merged. These occupied sites at Ysgol Penrallt (Now home to the Pwllheli campus of Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor) and Upper Ala Road, respectively. The two schools merged in mid-1969 to form a comprehensive school.
The junior pupils (First Year and Second Year) were located at the Ysgol Penrallt site and the senior pupils (Third Year and upwards) were located at a new building constructed on Cardiff Road. This new school was subsequently expanded to accommodate all pupils in the 1990s.
