A Welcome from our Head Teacher

We would like to welcome you to our school. Nottage is set in extensive grounds, including lovely woodlands and playing fields. We are also very lucky to be near the sea and close to Porthcawl Comprehensive School.

We are a warm and welcoming school with wellbeing at the heart of everything we do.

We have embraced the New Curriculum as we understand that learning should be through experience and wonder. We place the needs of the children at the centre of our vision as we believe children thrive when they feel, happy and secure and have a voice in their own learning.

You will find lots of information on our website and if you are not already part of our Nottage family please contact the school with any questions or to arrange a visit.

Head Teacher
