Ysgol Pen Rhos pupils, staff and governors are very proud of the rich history of the school - Pen Rhos is a new Dual-stream Primary School in Llanelli, following the amalgamation of Copperworks Infant School and Lakefield Primary School. Both schools have a very significant part in the history of education in Llanelli with both schools being built and established in the mid 1800's.
In April 2018 our wonderful new school opened for the first time to provide education for all of our pupils in a 21st century building! This was made possible thanks to the 21st century Schools Modernising Education Programme funded by Welsh Government and the MEP team of Carmarthenshire County Council.
We celebrated our official opening in June 2019 with a special first performance by our newly formed Côr Pen Rhos for many special guests.
