Transition of Dynevor Revisited to the new site is nearing completion. Most pages have been moved, with improvements to the image galleries, internal links, and TOD and School Magazine sections.
The Members Area and the new search engine are next. The search engine will enable searches within The Dy’vorian, School Magazines and other documents.
Find Your Years will take a while as data has to be extracted manually from the old system. If you want a year reinstated out of sequence please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Welcome to the Dynevor Revisited Website
If you had the good fortune to have been educated at Dynevor, this is your home website. Its purpose is to provide a contact base and information source for the thousands of past pupils of Swansea’s Dynevor Schools who are now living all over the United Kingdom and beyond.
This website replaced the site that was born on Wednesday 24th July 2002, when some five hundred former pupils and staff came to the school on the last day of its life before closing. Such was the atmosphere on that day that the collective urge was to do something concrete in memory of the school. This site and ‘The Dy’vorian’ bi-annual journal (TOD) were the outcome.
Membership of the Old Dy’vorians’ Association has increased considerably since that day and now stands at around 550, with former pupils and staff from Dynevor Secondary Grammar School, Dynevor Senior Comprehensive School and Llwyn-y-Bryn Girls’ School, which amalgamated to become the new Dynevor Comprehensive School in 1978, among our membership.
More recently, we are pleased to have welcomed staff from the University of Wales Trinity Saint David into the Association.
This website is a focal point for all past Dynevor Schools and the Old Dy’vorians’ Association is looking to maintain interest in the life of all of those schools, which together combined to make Dynevor such a significant presence in the history of education in Swansea. At the same time, by harnessing the power of the Internet and social media, we hope to make contact with younger generations of former pupils, staff and students so that we can keep the spirit of Dynevor alive!
We hope that you enjoy your visit to the www.dynevorrevisited.org.uk website. Furthermore, we encourage anyone wanting to learn more about the Association and its activities and those wishing to submit photographs of your ‘Year’ (or the Teams and Groups that you were a member of during your stay at Dynevor) to contact us via email@example.com
