Wednesday 09 December 2015

The three to 19 Welsh medium campus has been built in partnership between Caerphilly Council and the Welsh Government who’ve provided £10m for the project through the 21st Century Schools programme.

The new campus provides new facilities to accommodate Ysgol Gymraeg Caerphilly and a satellite site for Ysgol Gyfyn Cwm Rhymni.

Speaking after the official opening Carwyn Jones said:

“It’s been great to see first hand the fantastic Welsh medium learning environment that’s been created here in Caerphilly.

“The Y Gwyndy campus is testament to the local authority’s desire to provide the best possible facilities for learners in the area. It will be a huge benefit to the children and young people of Caerphilly and the community as a whole.

“We are investing £1.4 billion through our 21st Century Schools and Education Programme to rebuild and refurbish over 150 schools and colleges in Wales.

“We’ve provided £10m for the Y Gwyndy campus, one of our earliest projects, and seeing up close how that money has been spent for the benefit of future generations of learners in Caerphilly is simply fantastic.”
