Background

Following the significant investment which Gwynedd Council has secured for modernising primary education provision in the City of Bangor. A total of £12.7 million has been allocated for the work, which includes a contribution of £6.3 million from the Welsh Government, to enable the Council to review and improve education provision. There is potential to use part of this budget to renovate and increase the capacity of Ysgol y Faenol.

As part of the process, the Bangor Catchment-Area Review Panel (CRP) which includes representatives from the schools in the catchment area, Bangor City Councillors, County Councillors and others, has been involved in the discussions and has considered the opportunities and options available. Following a full consideration of the possible options, it is proposed to increase the capacity of Ysgol y Faenol to 315, addressing the need for places in the Bangor catchment area.
