GWYNEDD Council is to hold another consultation into the future of Bala’s superschool.

The council’s Cabinet has decided to push ahead with a decision to remove any church status in the superschool and will hold a period of statutory consultation on a proposal to reorganise the Berwyn catchment area schools.

The consultation will seek views on the proposal to establish a 3-19 Learning Campus, Welsh-medium, community status on the current Ysgol y Berwyn site which would officially open from September 2019.

Following the Cabinet decision on 24 October, a statutory consultation period will be held from the end of November to the beginning of January 2018.

Gwynedd Council’s Cabinet member for education councillor Gareth Thomas said: “We are totally focused on ensuring the provision of world class education for the children and young people of the Berwyn catchment area.

“As is known, the recent changes to the situation related to the proposed campus’ governance/management arrangements have caused slippage in the work programme for establishing the campus as a legal institution.

“Although the campus will not officially open until September 2019, the construction works are progressing well on site and we anticipate that new facilities, following £10.27 million investment, will be made available to local residents to take full advantage of the resources from September 2018 onwards.”

Details of the statutory consultation will be available on the council’s website from the end of November: .
