26.11.19 Increase the capacity of Ysgol y Faenol

On Tuesday 19 November 2019, due to a delay in the construction tendering process, the Governing Body decided to delay the implementation date of increasing the capacity of Ysgol y Faenol to 315 pupils from 1 January 2021 to 1 September 2021, as it would be unreasonably difficult to complete the building works by the 1 January 2021 as a result of a delay in the tendering process.
