Ysgol Yr Hafod

Work to improve school facilities across Wrexham is continuing as we approach the summer months and attention now turns to Ysgol Yr Hafod in Johnstown which is currently based on two separate sites.

Although plans are yet to be drawn up there are proposals for an extension at the Bangor Road site to house foundation phase pupils.

If everything goes according to plan a planning application will be submitted late summer early autumn which will then go through the  statutory planning process at the earliest opportunity following consultation with all interested parties.

Cllr David A Bithell, Chair of Governors at the school, said: “Following amalgamation of the two schools a few years ago we are hopeful that we will be able to see the whole of the school together on one site. Plans are at the very early stages but an exciting time to improve education for Children in Johnstown.

Works are now ongoing to draw up detailed plans that will be submitted as soon as they are finalised.”

Alison Heale, Headteacher, said: “It’s a really exciting time for the school and we are all very hopeful that we will soon see the plans move on to become a reality. The young people of Johnstown deserve the very best facilities that can be offered and staff are ready to rise to the challenges that may arise in order to see an improved school environment for everyone.”
