BAM breaks ground on £8m Brynmenyn Primary
Construction officially began this week on a new home for Brynmenyn Primary School in South Wales.
The new school will be bigger with better facilities to cope with a rising demand for school places in the Valleys Gateway area. It is due to open in spring 2018 at a total cost of £8.15m.
The new Brynmenyn Primary School is being built by BAM Construction on the former site of Archbishop McGrath Catholic High School next to Coleg Cymunedol Y Dderwen. This is less than a mile away from its current home on Bryn Road.
The project is being jointly funded by Bridgend County Borough Council and the Welsh Government’s 21st century schools programme.
A group of Brynmenyn pupils have been elected ‘building ambassadors’ by their schoolmates. Explaining their role, head teacher Clare Dale said: “Voted for by their peers, our building ambassadors will have a very important role to play in the coming months. They will visit the site regularly, update the rest of the school on progress, and will share their ideas for the interior design, colours etc. They are very keen to get started and love their new high visibility jackets.
“All of our pupils are starting to get excited now, and are particularly thrilled that they will have grass in the new school. As the current school is surrounded by concrete they are really looking forward to that.”
