Local AM encourages local community to have their say on Rhyl High new build

Vale of Clwyd AM, Ann Jones is calling on parents, pupils, staff and local residents to put their views on how a brand new school on the Rhyl High School site should be built to a consultation, being run by Denbighshire County Council.

Two public events are being arranged this summer to update parents and residents about plans for a brand new school on the Rhyl High School site. Plans to update the school buildings have been gradually developing since summer 2009.

Mrs Jones said: “A brand new school site has been long overdue on the Rhyl High site.

“Pupils achieve more when they learn in environments which are clean, safe, warm, secure and have the most up-to-date equipment. For this reason, it is vital that we get this new build right”.

The design and planning stage (Phase 2) is expected to last into early 2014, with actual building work starting later in 2014.

Design details will be developed in consultation with pupils, school staff, governors, parents, local residents and other interested parties.

The first community event will take place on Wednesday, 31 July between 5 and 7pm at Rhyl High School. An information stand will also be arranged at the Botanical Gardens Community Fun Day on Sunday, 18 August (between 11am and 5pm).

The new school will also include a home base for pupils of Ysgol Tir Morfa, facilities for use by the local community and other organisations.
