Please note: In accordance with recent school reorganisation proposals the English Medium catchment areas of both Pillgwenlly and Maesglas Primary Schools will be changing with effect from September 2023. These changes will be available to be viewed from 7 July 2022. Please check your catchment school prior to making an application. This is only relevant for nursery and reception. 

Applicants are advised to ensure that their application is submitted by the relevant closing date. If you submit your application late, it will be less likely that your child will be able to attend the school of your choice.
