Primary schools serving parts of North Cardiff could be reorganised

A reorganisation of primary school provision for parts of Heath, as well as Cathays and parts of Gabalfa, Llandaff North and Plasnewydd could be on the way.


The proposals include:

  • Amalgamating Allensbank and Gladstone Primary Schools to form a new 420-place (2FE) English-medium primary school with nursery on the current shared Gladstone Primary School / St Monica's Church in Wales Primary School site.

  • Transferring Ysgol Mynydd Bychan to the current Allensbank Primary School site.

  • Increasing the capacity of Ysgol Mynydd Bychan from 192 places (0.9FE) to 420 places (2FE) and increase the number of nursery places at Ysgol Mynydd Bychan from 64 to 96.

  • Transferring St Monica's Church in Wales Primary School to the current Ysgol Mynydd Bychan site allowing the school to have nursery provision, following agreement of the Governing Body of St Monica's Church in Wales Primary School.

The recommendations will be considered by Cardiff Council's cabinet at its meeting next Thursday (18 January).

Council leader Huw Thomas said: "Following a public consultation with schools, governors, parents and children, the latest proposals have been designed to improve learning opportunities and support schools with financial pressures currently being experienced in the area.

"If agreed, the reorganisation of four primary schools will also help to achieve the correct balance of English and Welsh medium primary provision so that current and future demand in the area can be met."

The proposed changes could take effect from September 2025.
