A primary school is set to move into a new £4.1m building to serve growing demand for places from Cowbridge.
St David’s Church in Wales Primary School in Colwinston will move to a new building and expand from 140 to 210 places if the council approves the plans on July 15.
The new two-storey school building, which would open in September 2021, would be built on the existing school’s grounds while the current buildings are demolished.
The plans come as 475 new homes are in the pipeline for land north west of Darren Close in Cowbridge – which is expected to bring 48 nursery, 132 primary, and 118 secondary school pupils to the area.
Vale of Glamorgan Council says the current St David’s CIW Primary building is in a poor condition and it would not be possible to refurbish it up to the required standard.
The new building would be funded jointly by the council and Welsh Government as part of the 21st Century Schools programme.
The Vale of Glamorgan Council’s cabinet will be asked to approve the expansion plans next week.
