Located in the mountains of mid Wales, Bryntail cottage was first used by staff and pupils from the Central Grammar School 104 years ago. For many years the tradition was to run two week camps at Easter and during the summer holidays. Later this extended to weekend visits, Duke of Edinburgh’s expeditions, and residential curriculum activities. The custody of the cottage has been passed down to Tile Cross Academy from its antecedent schools. This extraordinary resource for the school is in need of redevelopment and we are currently negotiating a renewal of a long term lease with the landlords, Severn Trent water that will enable us to source the grant funding needed to do this.
