Llantwit schools merger consultation extended


Published Tuesday 04 February 2014


The consultation has been extended on a proposal to create a new 420 place primary school as part of the Llantwit Learning Community by amalgamating Eagleswell and Llanilltud Fawr Primary Schools.


In response to requests from parents the Llantwit Learning Community Consultation has been extended until Monday 17 February.


The Vale of Glamorgan Council proposes to establish the Llantwit Learning Community to transform educational opportunities in Llantwit Major. The Llantwit Learning Community will be located on the current Llantwit Major Comprehensive, Llanilltud Fawr Primary and Ysgol Gymraeg Dewi Sant sites.


The Llantwit Learning Community would comprise a remodelled Llantwit Major Comprehensive School, a new 420 place primary school formed from the amalgamation of Eagleswell and Llanilltud Fawr primary schools and expansion of Ysgol Dewi Sant to a 210 place school. The three schools would be co-located on the same site but retain their separate identities and would benefit from shared facilities.


The Llantwit Learning Community will meet the aims of the Welsh Government’s 21st Century Schools Programme to enable the schools and community to access a wide range of new facilities.

A drop in session for anyone interested in the consultation will be held at Eagleswell Primary School on Friday 7 February between 3.15pm and 6.00pm.
