Plans put forward for new High School development in Cardiff
Access control and security provisions are extremely important when planning the construction of a new school or educational establishment. And this is exactly the topic of a new application to Cardiff planners involving the new Fitzalan High School, a recent news report has been able to suggest.
The High School will represent a £63.5m investment and would involve the existing school replaced with a new-build school on land next to the Leckwith Stadium in the Canton area of the city.
It would be a ten-form entry, accommodating up to 1,500 students between the age of 11 and 16, plus a sixth form. The new school would offer sports facilities including a multi-use games area, 3G pitches and a new indoor swimming pool, replacing the current pool which is already used by local schools and community groups.
These, and other facilities at the school would be available for public use outside school hours.
Cllr Sarah Merry, deputy leader of Cardiff Council, and cabinet member for education, employment and skills, said: “Schools investment is a priority and this is the next step to delivering a new Fitzalan High School which will not only provide pupils with access to state-of-the art facilities and the highest quality learning environment, but also provide the local community with opportunities to benefit from excellent, modern amenities.”
