Ysgol Gymraeg Y Fenni is an ambitious and fair Welsh Primary School for 3 to 11-year-olds in the Mardy area of Abergavenny. In September 2017 a Nursery Unit for 3/4 year olds was established as part of the school. There is a Cylch Meithrin and therefore wrap around care on the school site.

The school's catchment area is wide and varied and includes urban and countryside areas across Monmouthshire. There are over 280 pupils in the school, with numbers increasing year on year. Since September 2018 the school has started to expand into a two-stream school in the Foundation Phase.

Pupils come from mixed areas, some areas of economic advantage, others are disadvantaged areas and the rest are areas without particular advantage or disadvantage. Around 4% of pupils come from Welsh-speaking homes where at least one of the parents speaks Welsh, around 3% of homes where both parents speak Welsh and around 97% of pupils come from non-Welsh speaking homes. 3.2% also come from an ethnic minority background. Around 9% of pupils currently receive free meals; the figure is below the national and local averages. There are 10.8% on the additional learning needs (ALN) register, and this figure is below the national and local averages.
