School building 'not pleasant for our students'

A generation of school buildings have leaking roofs, poor windows and cold cramped classrooms, said a head teacher who has accused the Welsh government of not doing enough to address it.

Jon Wilson said he has asked for some "deplorable" buildings at Duffryn High School to be refurbished for 13 years.

He claimed the Welsh government's 21st Century Schools programme "hasn't worked" for his school and has been poorly executed across the country.

But the Welsh government said £1.4bn was being invested.

The school's English teacher Lauren Sharpe described some of the difficulties faced.
