General[edit | edit source]
The name 'Penybryn' means 'top of the hill' in Welsh and the school is located on slightly raised ground above the town's historic centre.
The school's catchment area (from September 2013) will include the town of Tywyn and the village of Aberdyfi; Ysgol Aberdyfi is due to close in August 2013. The school feeds the town's secondary school, Ysgol Uwchradd Tywyn.
History[edit | edit source]
The school was founded in 1860 as the Towyn British School. The original building is now the northern block of the school, and the other main block was built in 1900. The house next to the school to the north was originally the Master's home.
