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.

Ysgol Gynradd Groes-wen Primary School

The first, Ysgol Gynradd Groes-wen Primary School, is underway. It will be delivered by lead developer Redrow and is currently under construction by Andrew Scott Ltd.

The school will offer 420 places and is the first of its kind in Cardiff to provide a dual language education stream – with one Welsh medium form and the other form offering 50/50 English and Welsh dual-language education. There will also be 96 part-time nursery places.

The school is expected to open in September 2023 for its first intake of pupils in Nursery, Reception, Year 1, and Year 2.

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.
