Ysgol Gymraeg Ystalyfera Bro Dur
Ysgol Gymraeg Ystalyfera Bro Dur is a Welsh-medium comprehensive school in Neath Port Talbot, Wales. The school provides education to three to eighteen-year-old pupils in Neath Port Talbot and south Powys from three campuses in Ystalyfera and Port Talbot.
It was founded in 1969 as Ysgol Gyfun Ystalyfera, on the site of the former Ystalyfera Grammar School. In 2017 the school merged with Ysgol Gynradd y Wern primary school to form an all-age school for ages three to eighteen, and was renamed to Ysgol Gymraeg Ystalyfera Bro Dur. In September 2018 the Bro Dur campus opened in Port Talbot, which operates alongside the primary and secondary school campuses in Ystalyfera.
