On Tuesday 13th February Gwynedd Council’s cabinet met to consider a recommendation to issue statutory notices on the proposal to establish a Welsh Medium 3-19 Learning Campus with community status on the current Ysgol y Berwyn site, in Bala with a scheduled opening on 1st September 2019.
A spokes person for the planning team said, “The Diocese of St Asaph wishes to support a way forward that protects the investment of £10m and allows the new school to open as soon as possible so that the children of Bala, Penllyn and the wider community can benefit.”
New Directions Aberystwyth works to support the schools and college communities across the region with recruitment and training supply. Matthew Lloyd from the team said of the plans “we are delighted to hear of such investment in the area with the notion of a new super school. This is a forward-thinking approach to future-proofing education and the destinations of our young people in the area”.
