NO decision has yet been taken on the future of two former primary school sites which were closed by Ceredigion County Council.

The buildings at Beulah School and Trewen School have stood empty since they were shut back in July.

Parents and local residents fought a long campaign following a public consultation to try to save both village schools, arguing that closure would have a detrimental effect on both children’s education and the local communities.

But ultimately that proved unsuccessful. Councillors cited falling pupil numbers and the high costs associated with running such small schools.

Now, more than three months down the line, the council says it is considering a number of ideas for the two sites but has promised that it will consult with local residents on any future plans.

A council spokesman said: “The sites of the former Beulah and Trewen schools are being assessed by the council to consider the range of options for their future use.

“The council’s Cabinet will make a decision on their future use following the assessment process, that will include consultation with the local communities.”

Prior to its closure, Beulah School had celebrated its centenary year in 2017
