Dyffryn Comprehensive is a split site 11-16 years comprehensive school based in Neath Port Talbot, [1] with the first two years being based in the 'lower' school, and the last three based in the 'upper'. They are around a mile apart from each other with the lower being in Port Talbot itself, and the upper being in Margam.

The current headmaster is Mr Martin Grimes.

In 2009 the school became the first in the county borough to offer a savings facility for its pupils. Also, as of writing this page, it has the only 'Interact club' in the area, where pupils think up ways to donate to charity, and choose charities to donate to.[2]

In 2011 and 2012 the school was in band one of school rankings in Wales. The school is still currently in band one. Band one is the highest of the five bands.

Dyffryn is also one of the only schools in the country borough to run a school Interact Club. Interact Club is the youth version of the Rotary Club. The Interact Club has raised thousands of pounds for local and international charities which the pupils themselves decide to support.

Dyffryn comprehensive has a strict uniform so that everyone looks the same and the pupils feel a sense of belonging among other students in the school.

The school also has an effective way of helping pupils through very difficult times and the teachers are all supportive and will help in anyway they can within reason.
