Admissions
Ysgol Glantaf accepts pupils from Welsh junior schools to the east of the river Taf.

Ysgol Glantaf accepts 11 year old pupils who are capable of receiving their education through the medium of Welsh. We stress to all our parents that Glantaf is a Welsh medium school. Ysgol Gyfun Gymraeg Glantaf supports the principle of a comprehensive education by offering this education to pupils of all abilities, without discrimination against race, creed, sex or disability as long as the pupils are able to cope with a Welsh medium education.

Ysgol Glantaf accepts pupils with severe learning difficulties into our Special Unit. In certain circumstances, we accept pupils from outside the Authority who have received permission from the Local Authority. We also accept older pupils who have moved to the catchment area if they are able to receive a Welsh medium education. In special circumstances we accept pupils who are younger than the accepted transferable age after considering a psychologist’s report and after receiving permission from the Education Authority.

Applications for a place should be made to the Chief Schools’ Officer, County Hall, Atlantic Wharf, Cardiff, CF10 4UW. Applications may also be made at www.cardiff.gov.uk. The school’s Standard Admission Number is 240.

The school provides an opportunity for prospective parents to visit during the year 6 open evening. If this is not possible then alternative arrangements may be made by contacting the head of year 7 and transition.

Looked After Children: We follow the county approach to the admission of looked after children. Our designated LAC officer is Mrs Janet Burnhill, who is responsible for supporting the welfare and achievement of looked after children. She works closely with the relevant heads of year to ensure appropriate provision for each pupil. Further details of our arrangements to support looked after children may be obtained from her.
