“We are delighted to secure investment from the Welsh Government through the 21st Century Schools Program in order to build  a new school in Criccieth. This means that the children of Criccieth will be able to enjoy their education in a modern building that is fit for purpose for teaching and learning in this modern era.” 

It is anticipated that the statutory consultation period will begin in the coming weeks. The consultation period will provide an opportunity for those involved in the school as well as any others to comment on the proposal. 

Cabinet meeting April 2019

Following the decision of Gwynedd Council Cabinet on 2 April 2019 a Local Review Panel has been established to discuss a new school in Cricieth. The intention is for this Panel to discuss the needs of a new school in the town mainly due to the poor condition of Ysgol Treferthyr.

The Local Review Panel will consider the opportunities and options available for the new school and then ask Gwynedd Council's Cabinet to allow a statutory consultation process on the preferred option that will be agreed following the completion of the Panel meetings.
