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 spent 20 happy years as the Deputy Headteacher and know how important this school is to the community of the Afan Valley
  • They say they want our children to be brought into the 21st century and have the best learning possible ? Our school is ranked number 6 in the whole of Wales,the only school out of the npt schools so even without the 21st century equipment I think we are doing remarkably well with just the way our fabulous teaching staff are approaching subjects and learning our children and the outcome is in their results .SAVE OUR SCHOOL
  • as head cook at cymer comprehensive our pupils will not have the same quality of food in margam. the head cook never turned up for any of the healthy school meetings in the past. we ensure every child has a nutritious meal. not like these super schools . fact. which means they do not/will not adhere to the healthy eating standards set out by welsh government and will almost be impossible to input the data onto the saffron data base.
