Just about every single school across the Welshpool area will benefit from a £5 million repairs pot that has been given the green light by Powys County Council’s cabinet.

It means that budgets for vital work, including hundreds of thousands of pounds for projects at Welshpool High School (pictured) and Buttington/Trewen and Guilsfield Primary Schools, can be released so that they can be completed over the next three years.

Caereinion High School will see £300,000 spent over three years to improve toilet facilities and improve disabled access.

Meeting in Llandrindod Wells the cabinet approved an annual improvement fund of more than £2m for primary and secondary school improvement projects for each of the next two financial years, with a further £1m earmarked for 2020/2021.

Cabinet Member for Schools, Councillor Myfanwy Alexander said: “We are investing in schools right across the county, in primary, secondary and special schools to improve the learning environment for learners and staff.”
