Ysgol Gyfun Bro Morgannwg is a Welsh medium comprehensive school in the town of Barry in the Vale of Glamorgan, on the coast of south Wales. It is located adjacent to Barry Hospital.

The school was established in September 2000, in what was formerly the Lower School of Barry Comprehensive School. By 2002, there were 24 teachers and 369 pupils in year 7 to 9 at the school. A quarter of the pupils came from homes where one parent could speak Welsh, and 6% came from homes where both parents could speak Welsh.[1]


Its Promise to the Pupil: The school’s aim is to offer you a complete Welsh education and thus to ensure that you reach the highest possible standards according to your ability and talents. We will do this in an atmosphere which supports you and respects you as an individual.

Motto: 'Dyro dy law i mi ac fe awn i ben y mynydd' / 'Give me your hand, and we'll reach the mountain-top'
