Location of Portfield School
Directions From the East
Follow the A40 from Carmarthen to Haverfordwest – keep straight on at the first roundabout (towards the town).
At the second roundabout (County Hall in front of you – round turrets) take 3rd exit turning left at the lights and following the one-way system up the High Street.
At the next lights (at the top of the hill) take the middle lane (bearing right) and keep left. After 100 yards go straight on where the one-way system turns right down the hill.
*** Pass Tesco’s entrance on your left, straight over the mini-roundabout and pedestrian crossing lights. After approx. 400 yards turn left into gateway between the end of the houses and Travis and Perkins builders merchants (there is a small Portfield School sign on right hand side of the main road but it is often pointing the wrong way!).
The big new building on your left is the Secondary or Upper School, or take the second right-hand fork down to the Primary or Lower School. (If you keep straight on at this point you will reach Ysgol Glan Cleddau). You can park anywhere in the lay-by at the Upper School between 9.15am and 2.45pm (at other times please ask about parking).
From the South
From Pembroke or Milford Haven – take the A4076 through Johnston and continue North. At Merlin’s Bridge roundabout take the exit leading up Merlin’s Hill towards the town. Keep straight on (passing Tesco’s entrance on your left at the lights). Join the one-way system at the next lights and stay in the left hand lane leaving the one-way system at the first corner.
Portfield School continues to grow so that now it is located on four sites:
two adjacent buildings in Portfield, Haverfordwest :
- Lower School building catering for pupils aged 3-12 yrs
- Upper School building catering for pupils aged 11 – 19 yrs
two classes within Tasker Milward Comprehensive School:
- Tasker Milward Satellite 1 & 2
and one building attached to Ysgol Preseli, Crymych:
- ‘Y Porth’ Satellite Centre catering for pupils aged 11-19 yrs.
The school benefits from a range of health and medical services. Our specialist school/community nurse is based at the school on most days for part of the day and there are dedicated areas for physiotherapists, speech therapists and occupational therapists to work with pupils. Hydrotherapy is provided in the school’s purpose built hydrotherapy pool.
The variety of sport and recreation activities offered at Portfield School include football, gymnastics, swimming, horse riding, athletics, rebound therapy and various team games. The school is affiliated to the Welsh Gymnastics Association which has enabled many to represent the County at sporting events in Wales.
Learning takes place in a range of stimulating, high quality environments such as the classrooms, sensory room, hydrotherapy pool, wildlife area and two playground areas which have been designed to support learning and to develop curiosity, exploration and risk taking.
