Construction of a brand new, purpose-built Additional Learning Needs school with specialist sixth form and early years provision in Newtown started in July 2022.
The new purpose built, 21st Century School for Ysgol Cedewain will feature a hydrotherapy pool, 2 sensory rooms, rebound room, garden, community café and much more. The project will also provide outdoor facilities to be shared between Ysgol Cedewain and Maesyrhandir C.P. School.
The new building is due to be completed in Autumn 2023, with demolition of the old building and creation of outdoor sports facilities to be completed by March 2024.
The investment of up to £22 million is being jointly funded by Welsh Government and Powys County Council.
The school is being delivered by Powys and constructed by Wynne Construction.
