Ysgol Penyffordd School Development


The Council is seeking your views on a proposal to increase the number of school places that are available at Ysgol Penyffordd.

The Council proposes to deliver the additional school places by:

Increasing the capacity of Ysgol Penyffordd from its current provision of 315 full time school places to 375 full time school places, an overall increase of 60 full time places from 1 September 2023.

The proposal would result in the school’s admission number increasing from 45 pupils per year group to 50 pupils per year group. 

The increase in capacity would be delivered through an extension to the existing school building.  It is proposed that the implementation of the new school capacity would be put in place after the building works are completed by 1 September 2023.
