Proposal to amalgamate Cefn Primary and Craig yr Hesg Primary Schools

The Council wishes to seek the views of stakeholders on the proposal to amalgamate Cefn Primary and Craig yr Hesg Primary Schools.  The amalgamation will be achieved by closing the two existing primary schools and opening a new, bigger community primary school to replace them.

The new school building will be built on the existing Craig yr Hesg Primary School site and the land adjacent to it (the former site of the Ty Gwyn Pupil Referral Unit).  It is proposed that the two existing schools will close with the pupils transferring to the new school no later than September 2026.

This proposal is made in accordance with the School Organisation Code – 2018 (011/2018).
