About Us

Cwmaber Infants’ School is a small school situated in the village of Abertridwr, about 3 miles from the town of Caerphilly. It caters for children from the ages of 3 to 7 years of age and has its own Nursery unit. There are approximately 125 children on roll in the school. Most of the children who attend our school live in the village of Abertridwr, but some live further afield.


The school was built in 1912 and started life as a Boys’ Secondary School. It is a beautiful stone building, set into the hillside, with glorious views over the Valley. The classrooms are large with high ceilings, and the classes share big “workshop” areas. In addition, we have a 21st century computer suite and a comprehensive, well stocked, child friendly library.


We have a large, attractive yard for the main school with a trim trail, climbing wall, benches, and a train. The nursery and reception have their own yards with a multitude of activities including a boat in each. In addition, we have a garden area with a patio and benches.


Should any parent / carer wish to visit the school, arrangements can easily be made.
