Ysgol Gyfun Cwm Rhondda is a Welsh Medium Comprehensive School for the pupils of the Rhondda Valley. It was established in September 1988 as a result of the great demand for Welsh medium education in Mid Glamorgan.
Cymer is the first Welsh Comprehensive School to belong to a specific geographical area and we are very proud of our roots, traditions and the rich history of the valley. Our school has grown to be an important part of valley life with our pupils contributing to local events. Our students have an important part to play in the future of the Welsh language in the Rhondda together with its Welsh traditions and culture.
We are a caring school in which both pupils and staff are valued. Everyone is treated with respect and consideration - staff, pupils and parents alike. Our philosophy is one of partnership and as in any successful relationship, each partner has to contribute. Great emphasis is placed on developing the whole person by offering a variety of opportunities to every pupil. It is a dynamic and busy school but we emphasise the importance of a solid learning foundation in order to reach high academic standards resulting in good results at SATs, GCSE, AS and A level.
