Llanfyllin consultation underway
29 November 2018
Consultation on plans to merge the two schools in Llanfyllin is now underway.
This follows a request from the governing bodies of Llanfyllin CP School and Llanfyllin High School for the Council to take forward plans to open an 'all-through' school in Llanfyllin. The current proposal is that the new school opens in September 2020.
The bilingual school would cater for pupils from the ages of 4-18 on the existing sites.
Cllr. Myfanwy Alexander is Cabinet Member with responsibility for Education and she commented:
"This proposal was generated from the community, with the schools coming together to create a vision for the future. The process of consultation is another stage in its development and I would encourage the people of Llanfyllin and the wider catchment to put forward their ideas and observations, to contribute towards shaping these positive changes."
The consultation document can be found online and people have until January 31st to respond.
Drop in events to discuss the plans are to be held in the town in January. For those people without internet access, copies of the consultation document will shortly be available from the two schools themselves.
Currently the primary school has 147 pupils and there are 707 pupils in the high school.
