The History of Glyntawe School in the Brecon Beacons

Glyntawe School

Originally built in 1899 on donated land, our historic single-storey building began as a primary school, giving local children their first taste of education. After closing as a school in the 1970s, Dulwich College, one of the UK's premier public schools, acquired the vacant building in the early 1980s. They transformed it into a vibrant field centre for Geography and Biology studies. Since then, the centre has seen major expansions and a 2013 conversion of the old toilet blocks into a state-of-the-art drying room.

Over the years, the centre has evolved, incorporating adventurous activities for students and opening its doors to external groups. Dulwich College remains committed to supporting education and the community by offering the Glyntawe Outdoor Centre's outstanding facilities to all, set in an area of breathtaking natural beauty.
