New designs on show
Designs for the proposed new primary and secondary schools in Holywell will be on view to the public at an informal drop-in event later this month.
One new primary school will replace Ysgol Perth y Terfyn Infants and Ysgol y Fron Junior school on the same site as a new secondary school for 11 to 16 year olds.
The flagship £30 million development will be built on the Holywell High School site on land at the top of the existing school field.
Senior schools’ staff, education officers and architects have been working together to achieve the best design in place. Parents and local people will be asked for their views on the proposed designs at the drop in event at Holywell High School on Tuesday 22 October between 5.30 and 7.30pm.
The proposed new secondary school will have 600 places and the primary school will have 315 places. Primary children and secondary age students will be educated in the latest state of the art accommodation with all modern IT facilities to assist with learning.
The schools are due to be open from September 2016.
Councillor Chris Bithell, Flintshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Lifelong Learning said:
“The provision of this exciting new learning campus in Holywell is moving closer as we can now share the proposed plans and designs with parents and the local community. I hope people will take the opportunity to come along and let us know their views.
