The plans are approved and the funding is in place – that means work can now begin on a brand new sixth form at Ysgol Morgan Llwyd!
The Mayor of Wrexham, Cllr Andy Williams, performed the official “turf cutting” alongside Chair of Governors Aled Roberts and Headteacher Eleri Lewis.
Mr Roberts, said that it was a welcome step forward for the school.
Lead Member for Education, Cllr Phil Wynn, said: “This is part of our ongoing commitment to improving the educational environment for pupils and staff and I know it will be greatly appreciated by both. I would like to thank the Welsh Government for their continued support of Wrexham schools and of course officers for their hard work in securing funding.”
The new build means that space at the school will be freed up ready for further investment to increase capacity at secondary level to secure Welsh secondary medium education in Wrexham
The new building will cost £1.55million and is funded by the Welsh Government’s Band A 21st Century Schools Programme and Wrexham Council.
The works will be undertaken by Read Construction of Wrexham and is scheduled for completion in late 2019.
Richard Heaton, Managing Director of Read, said: “Read are delighted to be undertaking yet another scheme with Wrexham Council to provide a 21st Century learning environment. We will be working with the school and community throughout the works to minimise disruption, whilst maximising social value.”
