Cabinet to discuss new plans for English and Welsh medium schools in Cornelly

The Cabinet of Bridgend County Borough Council will meet next week to discuss ambitious plans that could provide new educational facilities in the west of the county borough.

Members will receive a report outlining proposals for replacing the ageing Corneli and Afon Y Felin primary schools with an all-new, state of the art modern English-medium school featuring a two-form entry system, a 60-place nursery and a 15-place resource centre for pupils with additional learning needs.

The proposals outline how the new school could be established at Plas Morlais by entering into an agreement with the current site owner, Valleys To Coast Housing, and exchanging the location for land vacated at Afon Y Felin.

The proposals also outline how Welsh-medium primary school Ysgol Y Ferch O’r Sgêr could gain all-new buildings and expand onto the current site occupied by Corneli Primary to become a two-form entry school with a 60-place Welsh-medium nursery.

Under the plans, the Integrated Children’s Centre currently located on the Corneli Primary site would remain in place, and new community facilities such as outdoor sports provision would become available.

Cabinet members will be asked to consider the proposals, and to agree for extensive consultation to be carried out.

The meeting will take place at 2.30pm on Tuesday 19 January.
