    I am sincerely appalled at the announcement to demolish the current building. The decision is based upon the poor state of repair despite spending £900k in maintenance since their decision to close it. The fabrication of this decision is further exposed by the fact that Coleg Cambria were committing to maintain the existing structure in their proposal as of December last year.

    In this report in September 2014, 14 months ago, the council were committing to retaining the existing building.

    “At the time council chiefs made a commitment to preserve the old red bricked girls school which could ow become a new part of Coleg Cambria.”

    We need a 3rd party to investigate this and recent decisions. It can not continue.

    I totally agree. Once again the, ‘cough’, ‘powers that be’ demonstrate their
    seeming total incompetence. One wonders if a really thorough investigation of the path to this decision would reveal some interesting, disturbing and possibly dark findings.

    Sign the petition if you haven’t done so already.

    http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/save-grove-park-girls-school-wrexham/

    It’s at 485 signatures as I type. For context, there were reportedly 210 replies to the online consultation for the Arts Hub with no indication of how many were in support.

    Knock it down.

    I appreciate the history and everything else but to me it represents hell.

    I suffered a great deal of abuse going to that school, I lasted 5 weeks. I drive past it and still go cold.

    I wish people luck with the Petition but for some of us, we cannot wait for the fall of the first brick

    On one hand, it’s an old building and you most likely save at least the frontage.

    On the other hand, it’s a really old building and even refurbished would cost a lot to operate. A newly built school there would be very efficient.

    On the other other hand, can’t really see why you’d want a new school so close to the town centre though.

    For gods sake Born Again, how many hands have you got like? A school so close to the town centre could result in reduced school transport cost and could also combine education links wth Coleg Cambria. On the other hand, lets just poo-poo any possible improvements to Wrexham!
