A public consultation was carried out on three initial options for the Whitchurch area at the end of 2009, including a series of meetings, public drop-in sessions and exhibitions. The consultation was extended in February 2010 when a fourth modified option was developed by officers. All views expressed at Council organised meetings and on paper or electronically through the appropriate channels have been recorded.


The report to be considered at their next meeting on April 8th informs the Executive of the responses received to the consultation on all four options. In considering the responses, officers have recommended the Executive consider agreeing to proceed with Option 4 and the publication of a statutory notice to:


  • Reduce the size of Whitchurch High School in size from 12 forms of entry (FE) to 10 forms of entry (FE) from September 2015 with a first phase of implementation to 11 FE from September 2012
  • close Eglwys Wen and Eglwys Newydd Primary Schools and replace these schools with a new 2.5FE English-medium primary school with nursery by investment in the premises currently shared between Eglwys Wen and Ysgol Melin Gruffydd, from September 2012
  • Transfer Ysgol Melin Gruffydd Primary School into the premises currently occupied by Eglwys Newydd, with investment, as a 2FE Welsh-medium school, with nursery, from September 2012

We want to thank all those that took part in the public consultation. We've been hugely grateful for the energy and community involvement shown across the city. We understand the strong views expressed and have been glad that in public meetings and drop-in sessions everyone had the chance to have a say.
