Work has begun on the flagship £30 million Holywell Learning Campus, site preparation work started at the site on Monday 19 January.

The new primary and secondary schools will be co-located on the site of the existing High School.

One new primary school will replace Ysgol Perth y Terfyn Infants and Ysgol y Fron Junior school and will cater for learners up to the age of 11.

This will be on the same site as the new facility for Holywell High School, which will be built to provide for the education of 11 to 16 year olds.

Councillor Chris Bithell, Flintshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Education, said

“I am extremely pleased that the construction of this exciting new learning campus in Holywell is now underway. It will be a wonderful modern new facility for children, young people and the wider community. These schemes form part of Flintshire’s planned investment in their schools under Welsh Government’s 21st Century Schools and Education Programme.”

Speaking on behalf of the head teachers of the three schools, Peter Davies from Ysgol y Fron Junior School said:

“​The children and community of Holywell deserve the best and that is what they will have when the new school buildings are complete. As we work to ensure the highest quality education for the children of Holywell, we know that their learning experience will be greatly enhanced by the investment in what will be a fantastic new facility for the community.”
