Why reorganise schools

Schools in Wales need to be in good condition and suitable for the delivery of a 21st Century education.


In some cases, schools can be modernised, repaired, refurbished, extended, or partially rebuilt to meet the standards needed for contemporary teaching and learning.


However some existing schools are no longer in the right place, or they are running at a loss. In such cases we might propose new schools or changes to existing schools.


The 21st Century Schools Programme will see a mix of retention and replacement, in line with local needs and the views of staff, pupils and parents. The quality standards which are going to be applied throughout Cardiff should ensure that all schools, regardless of whether they are new, will be excellent environments for teaching and learning after investment has taken place.
