Construction company Wynne Construction has secured a contract worth £4m to construct a new primary school in Cricieth, the UK.

The new school, named Ysgol Treferthyr, will be constructed on a greenfield site on the western approach to the Gwynedd town, around 500m from its current location.

Currently, it is using a school, which was constructed in the 19th century with a 1970s prefabricated extension in the centre of town, having a capacity for 119 primary pupils aged from three to 11.

Upon completion, the new Ysgol Treferthyr will have a capacity for approximately 150 pupils and a nursery.

It will feature six classrooms with external access, a hall, kitchen and a multipurpose room, all on one floor for ease of access.

Outside, there will also be a playground, a multi-use games area and a grass playing field.

The construction company noted that the project is being funded by the Welsh government under the 21st Century Schools programme along with Gwynedd Council.

Construction work on the school is expected to commence in November and is planned to take about 18 months.

Wynne Construction managing director Chris Wynne said: “This is a significant project for the local community and throughout the construction of the new school, we will look to leaving a lasting legacy, by creating job and training opportunities, working with our local supply chain partners and engaging with pupils as well as showcasing the wide range and variety of job roles available within the construction industry.

“Providing a modern 21st Century School facility where young people can learn and develop in an inspirational environment that serves the local community is paramount and reinforces our commitment to delivering a legacy within the town.”
