The London Welsh School (Ysgol Gymraeg Llundain) is a Welsh medium primary school in London, England. The Welsh language is the language of instruction for all classes and activities. The London Welsh School's origins date back to language classes taught in 1955, and a dedicated school set up some two years later. Its official name is The Welsh School, London. For much of its history the school was the only Welsh medium institution located outside Wales until the opening of a Welsh language school in Patagonia, Argentina. That institution, the Ysgol yr Hendre, was opened on 6 March 2006 in Trelew to serve the Welsh-Argentine community.
In 2000 the London Welsh School was forced to leave its host since 1961, the Welsh Chapel in Willesden Green. Cardiff North MP Julie Morgan appealed for government funding for the school, but was rejected on the grounds that it did not teach the National Curriculum for England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The school later found a permanent home in the annex of a Brent primary school.
