School catchment areas

Welsh-medium schools

There are no catchment areas for the Welsh-medium schools in Bridgend. 

A parent/carer can make an application for a place for their child at any Welsh-medium school within the county. However, if a parent/carer chooses to apply for place at a Welsh-medium school that is not the nearest Welsh-medium school to the child’s home residence, and that application is successful, there is no entitlement to free home-to-school transport to that requested school.   

Eligibility for school transport only applies where the child’s home residence is more than two miles walking distance from the nearest Welsh-medium primary school or three miles walking distance from the nearest Welsh-medium secondary school.
