Extra Curricular Activites

At Ysgol Y Gogarth we are fortunate to be able to offer our pupils a whole host of high quality opportunities outside of the curriculum. We feel strongly that these experiences, which are an important and exciting feature of school life, contribute enormously to our pupils’ social and academic development. By offering such a wide range of opportunities we believe that every single pupil at Ysgol Y Gogarth will experience success in their own individual way.

This extensive range of opportunities includes our swimming programme, offering sessions in our hydrotherapy pool on site and at our local swimming pool in Llandudno leisure centre. We also provide opportunities to learn and practice cycling on site and within the local community, and by using our amazing adapted bikes this becomes a totally inclusive activity. Our senior pupils are given the opportunity to undertake gym inductions allowing them to make regular use of the JM Gym (our on-site gym) building towards using the community gym at Llandudno leisure centre.

We offer an extensive outdoor education programme and through partnership work, look to provide as many outdoor and adventure activities to our pupils as possible. This can be seen as often as daily with The Daily Mile initiative running at school. This sees our pupils given the opportunity to walk, run or wheel one mile on site every day, making Ysgol Y Gogarth a much healthier and happier place!



Our partnership work has also allowed us a build a creative schools programme which offers all of our pupils a range of creativity sessions including a combination of art, music and physical movement. We also deliver inclusive rugby sessions to our pupils via our WRU Rugby HUB Officer, Mr Dafydd Williams. He brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience of Welsh rugby and is able to share his skills with our pupils by delivering excellent coaching sessions. Dafydd offers us a unique link to the Welsh Rugby Union (WRU) and as a current Rygbi Gogledd Cymru (RGC) player he looks to develop links between RGC and Ysgol Y Gogarth.


The school boast a healthy and ever growing list of links with community sports clubs and organisations such as Manchester City FC, Llandudno FC, Cricket Wales, Golff Cymru, Welsh Gymnastics, Byw'n Iach, Adventure Parc Snowdonia, Zip World, Panathlon and the sports department at Coleg Llandrillo.


Luckily for the pupils at Ysgol Y Gogarth they don't have to go down to the Promenade for a we have our very own hydrotherapy pool on site. The state of the art pool allows our pupils to undergo physiotherapy, gain water confidence and regulate their moods and emotions.

Adapted Bikes

In partnership with Ffit Conwy, Ysgol Y Gogarth have built a collection of adapted bikes ranging from top class mountain bikes, to tricycles, to mini balance bikes to electric wheelchair carriers. This allows us to deliver a totally inclusive cycling programme, offering ALL pupils in school a chance to get active on a bike.

Rebound Therapy

Pupils at Ysgol Y Gogarth are given the opportunity to engage in Rebound Therapy sessions using the two trampolines we have on site. These sessions take place during the school day and during afterschool clubs and the pupils love it! This activity is totally inclusive, by using a state of the art hoist we are able to offer these sessions at ALL pupils.
