Our School

Headteacher's Welcome

Romilly Schools have served the children of Barry since 1893. The school has a long tradition and distinguished history and enjoys a special place in the community. We strongly believe in continuing and building upon these foundations in partnership with the community.

We place the children at the heart of our school. We consider it a privilege to provide a stimulating and creative curriculum, that is firmly based on first hand meaningful learning experiences. We pride ourselves on the broad, balanced and full education we provide for all children - the high standards of teaching and learning are a credit to the hard work of both staff and children.

We value the contribution of every child and not only want them to receive an excellent education but also feel happy and safe. Together with the help of parents, we want to nurture a love of learning, and to equip every child with life skills for now and the future.

Our 130 place Nursery caters for children from the age of 3yrs and offers morning and afternoon places.

The main school has a standard entry number of 90. This means that all year groups are made up of three classes. 

The school has excellent resources including a dedicated Music Suite, State of the art ICT facilities, Lego Lounge and large outdoor spaces and innovative internal learning spaces.

The school motto 'Learning Together - Growing Together' is central to our belief of offering the best possible experiences for the children in our care.
