Statutory notice published for Newtown school merger plans
14 January 2020
Plans to amalgamate two Newtown schools to create a new all-through English-medium primary school have taken a step forward with the publication of a statutory notice.
Earlier this month, Powys County Council's Cabinet approved plans to amalgamate Ladywell Green Infants School and Hafren C.P. Junior School. The current proposal is that the new school opens in September 2021 on the existing school site.
The new school would cater for pupils from the ages of 4-11. Currently, the infant school has 94 pupils and there are 145 pupils in the junior school.
The statutory notice can be found on the council's website at https://en.powys.gov.uk/article/7476/Ladywell-Green-Infants-School-and-Hafren-Junior-School
The Objection Period will end on the Monday, February 10, 2020.
