Bryn Hafren Comprehensive School Wikipedia
When comprehensive schools were introduced to Barry in September 1966, this was delayed for girls because of the lack of buildings. Bryn Hafren Comprehensive School opened as the comprehensive school for girls in 1973.
In 1993, Barry Sixth Form, a joint sixth form with Barry Boys' Comprehensive School was created.
The school ground covers 36 acres (150,000 m2), with sports fields, tennis courts, a gymnasium, a swimming pool and a recently developed fitness gym.
There is also a dedicated 6th form block and over 14 networked computer rooms.
