Communities Against the closure of Cymer Afan Comprehensive School

Oppose the closure of Cymer Afan Comprehensive School.

Why is this important?

Cymer Afan Comprehensive School is at the heart of our community and situated in the Upper Afan Valley. The teachers are above average with a rating of 4.41/5 stars. The children receive excellent education and this goes to show as the school is 6th out of the whole of Wales. The children would have to travel at least 2 hours minimum each day, on not the best valley roads. This inturn would affect the children's health and well-being.

Reasons for signing

  • I am ex-pupil and doctor or medicine, philosophy and science. I am proud of my roots in Cymmer. Removing the school will take out a critical part of village life - what is left of it. Here is your chance to pay attention to wider issues than just schooling - there is a community living there.
  • Children traveling 12 miles for education is unacceptable.
  • Because I love to help
