Work bringing two schools together under roof is racing ahead with completion due in the autumn.

The works, which are currently being undertaken at Penycae Community Primary School, include the building of four new classrooms and refurbishment works to the old building.

Once complete the former infants and juniors schools will be housed under the same roof for the first time. The two schools were amalgamated in 2008 and now have one headteacher and one governing body.

The £2 million improvement works started in February 2017 and are being undertaken by Reed Construction.

Chair of Governors, Cllr Joan Lowe, said: “It’s a very exciting time for the school community in Penycae and the children are already making use of a new outside play area with the new classrooms being built on the old play area.

“Everyone is working hard and it’s business as usual at the school as the works take place.

“Over the summer holidays we should see even greater progress and everyone is looking forward to being together for the first time.

“I would like to thank everyone involved in making this happen in Penycae.”

The works have been funded using 21st Century School funding from the Welsh Government, which was match funded by Wrexham Council.
