About the programme

The 21st Century Schools Programme is a collaboration between Welsh Assembly and local authorities in Wales to create the right schools in the right places.


The main priorities of the investment programme are to:


  • Match the supply of and demand for places
  • Invest in new schools and refurbish existing schools
  • Meet demand for education in both English and Welsh
  • Create ‘all-through' primary schools
  • Create a nursery provision on primary school sites
  • Improve ICT facilities


This will create:


  • Better learning environments for children and young people aged from 3 to 19
  • Better use of resources to improve the efficiency of schools
  • A sustainable education system with all schools meeting national standards, reducing running costs and the current carbon footprint


We will continue to raise school standards and improve the quality of the learning environment to create fit-for-purpose 21st century schools and give every child in Cardiff the best possible start in life.
