Rhondda Cynon Taf parents want superschool reassurances

Three secondary and eight primary schools could close to make way for three "superschools" as part of a £75m shake-up in Rhondda Cynon Taf.

The proposals would see two new schools for three to 16-year-olds in Porth and Tonypandy, and a school in Tonyrefail for three to 19-year-olds.

Two sixth form centres of excellence would also be created.

Councillors will debate the reorganisation plans on Thursday.

If given the go-ahead, the changes would be implemented by 2018.

Karl Evans is a father living in the area, and has previously campaigned against cuts to education.

He told Mai Davies parents wanted reassurances about how the superschools will work, especially with the youngest children.
