Ysgol Gynradd Gymraeg Llyn y Forwyn

The Ferndale school will receive a brand new building, in a multi-million pound investment. The 21st Century facility, including provision of a Cylch Meithrin, will be built at the former 'Chubb' Factory at Highfield Industrial Estate, delivering improved facilities for staff, pupils and the community in 2024.

The development will expand the local Welsh Medium primary offer and include modern, flexible and accessible facilities with community use. The new Cylch Meithrin will also offer increased availability of pre-school sessions for 2-3 year-olds. Enhanced outdoor spaces will support the delivery of all curriculum activities, while a staff car park and bus and parent drop-off point will also be provided on site. The new building will also be Net Zero Carbon in operation.

The school currently has Victorian buildings with a large backlog of maintenance, where there is little opportunity to improve outdoor provision due to the topography of the current site.

A Pre Application Consultation held by KEW Planning in (June/July 2022) provided residents with an opportunity to find out more and have their say.
