RCT have proposals to reorganise school provision in the Pontypridd and Hawthorn areas.

They have commenced consultation on several proposals to reorganise primary and secondary education in the Pontypridd and Hawthorn areas of RCT. The main proposals can be summarised as follows:

Closure of Pontypridd High School and Cilfynydd Primary School and the creation of a new ‘all through’ 3 – 16 school on the Pontypridd High School site

Closure of Hawthorn High School, Hawthorn Primary School and Heol y Celyn Primary School and the creation of a new ‘all through’ 3 – 16 school on the adjacent sites of Hawthorn High and Hawthorn Primary Schools ( the English Medium stream of Heol y Celyn would join this provision).

Closure of YGG, Pont Sion Norton and the relocation of its education provision to a new school that will be constructed on the former Heol y Celyn site (the Welsh Medium stream of Heol y Celyn would join this provision)

Closure of the sixth form at Cardinal Newman RC Comprehensive School and the expansion of the sixth form provision at Bryncelynnog Comprehensive School, to create a sixth form ‘centre of excellence.
