New school in Cricieth

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. We anticipate that the Panel's work will come to an end in September.


Membership of the Panel

  • Headteachers of Ysgol Treferthyr and Llanystumdwy
  • Chair of the governing body of the 2 schools
  • Parent governor from the 2 schools
  • Cricieth and Llanystumdwy Local Members
  • Church in Wales representation


Consultation with Children and Young People

The authority will engage and consult with children and young people once the Panel has considered all the options available for the area.
