Hi there, just wondering where to start. we are moving from ireland to the gwyned area and don't know where to start! No welsh whatsoever. Where is a good place to live there? We need good facilities such as tennis and shops within walking distance for our children.
Our local secondary in Denbighshire is bilingual with three streams for education. Welsh, bilingual or English. So if you pick Welsh all topics (except. English! Are through the medium of Welsh). If you pick English they're all through English except Welsh and billingual you have a welsh tutor and lessons are a mix.
Its sort of like three 'houses' so you are core educated with your house but then sports and assemblies are with all.
Glasinfryn is nice evbev, lovely cycle track nearby, easy access to A55, not to far from Bangor. In catchment area for frairs secondary school and you would get a wide choice of primary schools to pick from. Not anything there in terms of a shop though I don't think. Caerhun and Minfordd are also nice and nearby and probably a bit cheaper than Bangor but not to far away either (hippo 123 in disguise).
How old are the children and would you like them to be able to speak Welsh? Most parents with children in Welsh medium schools in Wales can't speak welsh. I live in Gwynedd if you want to ask about anywhere in particular.
