£4.5m investment transforms Ysgol Llangadog for staff and pupils

A £4.5MILLION investment has transformed Ysgol Llangadog providing new, modern, first class accommodation and facilities for staff and pupils.

Phase two of the Carmarthenshire County Council project has now been completed and saw the existing school building being totally remodelled to provide a new kitchen and dining room, hall/gymnasium, library, staff room, office accommodation, outdoor eco area/garden and space for an external provider to deliver 30 nursery places.

A new bus bay at the rear of the school site has also been included as part of the final phase.

The first phase was completed in March 2019 and included a new building providing new classrooms for 120 pupils, together with the construction of a new 52-space car park.

Headteacher Andrea Moore (pictured) said: “We are extremely proud of our modern, purpose-built Ysgol Llangadog school site. Together, we look forward to an exciting future, providing quality educational opportunities and experiences as key members of the local community and beyond.”

The project has been delivered as part of the council’s

Modernising Education Programme and is jointly funded by Welsh Government through its 21st Century Schools initiative.

It was designed by the council’s own architects and the works were carried out by local contractor WRW.

Executive Board Member for Education and Children’s Services Cllr Glynog Davies said: “This project has provided state-of-the-art accommodation and facilities for the benefit of both staff and pupils, as well as the wider community.

“I am delighted the project has now been completed and I am sure it will provide a wonderful teaching and learning environment in which our children can thrive.”
