Consultation and Proposals Information

To the Community of the Upper Afan Valley and beyond,

We would like to thank you for your support and hard work in the fight to stop proposals to close Cymer Afan Comprehensive School. This letter explains what is happening, see below.

Letter Consultation Dec 22nd


Latest consultation documentation. Monday 11th December 2017.

Please find below a link to the most recent consultation documents released by NPTCBC, this is an external link and will take you to the NPT website.



As many of you will be aware, the school has recently been given the news from the local council that Cymer Afan Comprehensive is under consultation for closure. This has come as a huge shock to anyone and everyone involved with, not only the school, but the federation and valley as a whole. The full proposed plans can be found through the following council link below.

The consultation process will run from November 8th 2017 to February 14th 2018, after which the evidence will be assessed and an outcome is likely sometime in March 2018. We feel that it is imperative that we explore every possible avenue in order to keep the school, federation and valley alive and we extend our sincerest gratitude to all the members of the community that have come out in support of the federation since news of this proposal broke. Please check back regularly for updates on the situation and keep yourself apprised of future developments. Should you wish for any further information please contact the school though one of the designate channels found on the homepage.
