Ysgol Syr Hugh Owen is a Welsh language medium comprehensive secondary school for pupils aged 11–18, situated in Caernarfon, Gwynedd, Wales. The school was established in 1894, the first to be built under the Welsh Intermediate Education Act of 1889 of the educator Sir Hugh Owen, after whom the school was named.

The school currently has over 900 pupils and its headteacher is Elwyn Vaughan Williams. The school serves the town of Caernarfon and the nearby villages which include Rhosgadfan, Rhostryfan, Llandwrog, Bontnewydd, Caeathro, Waunfawr and Y Felinheli.[1] The school has a sixth form which enables students to stay at the school for a further two years instead of having to transfer to college.
