SCHOOLS

Through Plasdŵr’s five new schools thousands of local children and young people will have access to a stimulating and high-quality education just a walk, cycle or short bus ride away from their homes.

Over £40 million will be invested in the four new primary schools to the north, east, south and west of Plasdŵr, and its secondary school.

The first, Groeswen Primary School, which will be delivered by lead developer Redrow, is underway with 420 places across one Welsh medium and one English medium class per year, plus 48 part-time nursery places.

Plasdŵr Comprehensive School, which is due to open within the next 10-15 years and will be delivered by Cardiff Council, is expected to provide up to 2,000 school places and will be co-located with Hafod Primary School in western Plasdŵr, near one of the four local centres, alongside the public transport and strategic cycling routes. Its location has been planned so that it lies within 1,500m of 98% of the homes.
