Work has just about finished and Wilmot Dixon are now concentrating on the Blenheim Road Community Primary School.  Cwmbran High will be holding a small Official Opening Ceremony Officiated by The Minister of Education Mr Huw Lewis AM. on 8th March 2016.


Cwmbran High School will be a centre of excelllence for teaching and learning, full of highly trained and dedicated staff. Our aim is to continue to build upon the excellent standards and rich traditions of both schools whilst shaping a new identity and successful future for our new school.

Plans have already been put into place to ensure a smooth transition for pupils from Fairwater High and Llantarnam into the new school.  Both schools have already done a considerable amount of work together in terms of curriculum planning, and we have agreed a series of meetings and joint INSET days to ensure priorities are addressed in plenty of time for the opening of Cwmbran High School.

Development on the current Fairwater High School site has begun with the aim of delivering a 21st Century Learning
Environment with a £6 million investment in the first instance.

We will continue to update pupils and parents /carers as work is completed.

Coed Eva Primary School is based at Teynes Rd Coed Eva and is a cluster feeder school to Fairwater High School and is a community school which is under the jurisdiction of Torfaen Local Education Authority. The school buildings comprising of nursery, infant and junior sites are set in extensive  grounds. The nursery and infant sites are single storey with a sessional day care facility ‘Messy Fingers’ and the junior site is two storey. The school has the luxury of fifteen large spacious classrooms, two large halls, a library, audio visual room, learning resource and an information technology centre.
Lots of fund raising activities have pulled together our community since New Years Day 2016 which saw our Nursery provision at the school destroyed by arson and needless vandalism.  I am sure greater things will rise out of the ashes of this fire.
