Proposal to establish two new mixed sex secondary schools
In 2016 the Vale of Glamorgan Council consulted on a proposal to establish two new mixed sex comprehensive schools for pupils aged 11 - 18 in Barry.
On 06 March 2017 the Council's Cabinet determined the proposal to transform secondary education in Barry by closing the existing single sex English medium Barry Comprehensive and Bryn Hafren Comprehensive schools and establishing two new mixed-sex, 11 - 18 English medium comprehensive schools on the current sites of Barry Comprehensive and Bryn Hafren Comprehensive schools from September 2018.
