Ysgol Gymraeg Llundain

…de la Press Association:

Singer Cerys Matthews will perform at a charity ball to raise funds for the only Welsh medium school outside Wales.

Matthews' own two children attend London Welsh School, which cannot getting funding through the usual channels.

The Assembly Government will not fund the school as it is not in Wales, and the UK Government only funds state schools which follow the national curriculum - London Welsh School follows the Welsh curriculum.

While it receives some funding from the Welsh Language Board, the school otherwise supports itself through donations and endowments...
