A priority for Powys County Council’s new 21st century school building scheme is an innovative and state-of-the-art build to replace the outdated school in Plantation Lane, Newtown.
Approximately £40million has been included in the project for Ysgol Cedewain, ensuring that the most vulnerable pupils in Powys get the high level of care and facilities required.
Mr Graham Owen, Chair of Governors at Ysgol Cedewain added: “The Governing Body is very pleased that, after many years of campaigning for a new school in view of the dilapidated condition of the current buildings, Powys County Council is intending to provide a new school and much improved facilities for some of the most vulnerable pupils in Powys. The Governing Body hopes that building of the new school will commence at the earliest possible opportunity to alleviate the very difficult situation with the current school’s infrastructure. The Governing Body would also like to pay tribute to the high standard of care and education provided by the staff at Ysgol Cedewain in very difficult circumstances.”
The site of the new build has not yet been decided but more updates will be on the way.
