Craig y Parc School
Craig y Parc School is committed to creating and sustaining an excellent teaching and learning experience for you plus a positive and supportive working environment for staff. We believe that excellence will be achieved through recognising the value of every individual. We aim to create an environment that respects the diversity of our staff and students and enables you to reach your full potential.
We offer flexible placements to children and young people, aged 3 to 19 years old, with complex support needs, including physical and sensory impairments, and severe or profound and multiple learning difficulties (PMLD).
Established in 1955, Craig y Parc has a reputation for helping our students to realise their educational and personal potential. We’re more than just a school and go further than just providing education.
We offer young people residential short breaks and placements, including day educational placements and combinations of stays to suit and accommodate individual needs, for up to 52 weeks per year, either weekly or termly.
Conductive Education teaches students how to learn to solve problems when faced with them. It is a holistic, movement based educational approach for children and adults who have neurological motor difficulties.
Respite & Short Breaks
You do not have to attend Craig y Parc School to be offered a short break placement at Tŷ Cwtch. For those staying for short breaks and not accessing the Craig y Parc education service, we will work closely with the young person and their key people to ensure opportunities for educational development are maximised.
