Beulah, Cilcennin and Trewen Primary Schools will close at the end of the school year.

At a full Council meeting on 24 May, decisions were made to close each school individually. Before making the decisions, councillors discussed in detail the objections received and the case for and against the closure of each school.

Councillor Catrin Miles is the Cabinet member responsible for Schools Services. She said, “We want to make sure that all children in Ceredigion continue to have the best possible education. This is part of our ongoing restructure of schools to ensure that we can provide pupils with the best learning environments and experiences. After facing years of severe cuts to council budgets from central government, we continue to have to consider the most efficient ways of providing education whilst maintaining the highest standards.”
