THREE primary schools in Dwyfor and Meirionnydd have been given the thumbs up from the schools inspectorate.

Estyn have recently released reports for Ysgol Penybryn, Tywyn; Ysgol Maenofferen, Blaenau Ffestiniog and Ysgol Borth-y-Gest, Porthmadog with all the schools receiving positive reports.

The only ranking which supersedes ‘good’ on the inspectors’ ranking is ‘excellent’ which is a relatively rare occurrence.
