Cardiff Council

Allensbank and Ysgol Mynydd Bychan Proposals

​​The provision of Primary School places to serve Cathays and parts of Gabalfa, Heath, Llandaff North and Plasnewydd

The Council is proposing changes to primary school provision serving Cathays and parts of Gabalfa, Heath, Llandaff North and Plasnewydd.

The proposed changes would: 

  • Increase the number of Welsh-medium primary school places serving the existing catchment area of Ysgol Mynydd Bychan
  • Reduce the number of English-medium surplus places serving the combined catchment areas of Allensbank, Albany and Gladstone Primary Schools

The Council is proposing to:

  • Increase the capacity of Ysgol Mynydd Bychan from 192 places to 315 places, from September 2022  
  • Reduce Allensbank Primary School from 315 places to 210 places, retaining nursery and ALN provision, from September 2022

We are also seeking views on how to ensure an appropriate balance of Welsh-medium and English-medium primary school places to serve the area in the long term.

These views will help to shape how schools serving the area are organised in the future.
