Dynevor School, Swansea

Dynevor School was a secondary school in Swansea, Wales. It was closed in 2002. The school's premises have been re-developed and are now used by the University of Wales Trinity Saint David (UWTSD).

The memory of the School is maintained in the form of the Old Dy’vorians Association which aims to:

  • Provide a means for keeping past pupils and staff of the School in touch with one another.
  • Take an interest in supporting educational development in Swansea and its environs by using the skills.
  • Garner and conserve material relating to the history, heritage and outreach of Dynevor School and its staff and pupils from its foundation as a Higher Grade School in Trinity Place in 1883, in order to secure, maintain and promote a literary, physical, audio, and digital archive resource.
