A brand new English-medium primary school in Tenby is approaching the end of its first year after being officially opened by the Cabinet Secretary for Education in the Welsh Assembly.

Kirsty Williams AM officially opened the new Tenby Church in Wales VC Primary School, which, with the new Welsh-medium Ysgol Hafan y Mor nearby, represent an £8.4 million investment in education in the town.

Both were built under the 21st Century Schools Programme – is a collaboration between Pembrokeshire County Council and the Welsh Government, who are splitting the funding.

They replace the Tenby VC and Tenby Junior schools and cater for children aged between three and 11.

The Tenby Church in Wales school has 54 nurseries and 252 reception to Year 6 pupils on a roll but can accommodate up to 380 under headteacher John Palmer.

The council’s own in-house architect team designed the new state-of-the-art school, which was built by West Wales contractor Andrew Scott Ltd with primary school fencing from Wolverhampton manufacturer Zaun Ltd, installed by Binns Fencing.

The school contains a Learning Resource Centre for specialist provision in the Tenby area and a spacious playground and school field to develop the strong sporting provision and achievement traditions at Tenby.

Zaun supplied primary school fences, Duo8 fencing to make a secure perimeter, sports fencing and decorative Bowtop Play railings around the playground, which adhere to RoSPA standards. Zaun’s range of primary school fences includes Secured By Design approved perimeter fencing and RoSPA compliant playground fences and gates.
