Welsh schools get replacement school to prevent overcrowding.

Welsh schools get replacement school to prevent overcrowding.

Two schools will be closed and replaced with a new one as part of a £12.7m plan to tackle overcrowding.

Gwynedd Council cabinet members voted unanimously in favour of plans to shut Ysgol Babanod Coedmawr and Ysgol Glanadda in Bangor by 31 August 2020.

A replacement school will be built close to the site of Ysgol y Garnedd, doubling its current capacity to 420.

One governor told a review that Ysgol y Garnedd pupils were currently packed in "like sardines".

Cabinet member for education, Gareth Thomas, said the plan would ensure children were educated in "a learning environment fit for the 21st Century".
