New-build, 11,000sqm 'super school', Ceredigion County Council's largest ever construction project
- Biggest ever building commissioned by Ceredigion County Council
- ‘super’ school for 3-19 year olds in Llandysul, Wales.
The new school merges five schools – Ysgol Dyffryn Teifi, Aberbanc, Coedybryn, Llandysul, and Pontsian – to form the county’s second ‘all-through’ school.
The build, which will be completed for the 2016/17 academic year, involves the construction of a new two-storey 11,200m2 facility to accommodate 1,000 primary and secondary school pupils.
“We have a great relationship with Willmott Dixon, as we’ve worked with them in the past on the construction of the Council’s Canolfan Rheidol Offices in Aberystwyth.”
Councillor Ellen ap Gwynn, leader, Ceredigion County Council
The school facilities will include a large hall, sports hall, kitchen and catering facilities, and 47 classrooms including science laboratories and IT facilities.
The design of the school has incorporated many sustainable features, including photovoltaic panels, and will make use of natural light and ventilation, to help create an energy self-sufficient school.
External landscaping of the surrounding area will create four sports pitches, a full sized 2G synthetic sports pitch and on-site parking.
