Opened in 1990, Ysgol Glanaethwy is a performing arts school that operates outside normal school hours. Younger children take acting lessons and choir practice and the older pupils have choir practice only.

The school became well known when its choir for older pupils took part in the UK TV channel BBC 1's Last Choir Standing show in 2008. The students went through auditions, callbacks, and knock out rounds.

The school now has three choirs: the junior choir, the senior choir and the 'Da Capo'.

Former members include: Mirain Haf, Owain Arwyn, Gwyneth Glyn, Elain Llwyd, Owain Arthur, Carwyn Jones, Ioan Pollard, Iddon Jones, Lucy Kelly, Lowri Wynn and Mareth Wyn Bean.
