THE COUNCIL is seeking people's views on the proposal to increase the pupil capacity at a Wrexham primary school.

The consultation is about the proposal to increase St Mary’s Church in Wales (CIW) Voluntary Aided (VA) School in Brymbo from 154 to 210 from September 2025, with the potential to increase further to 315 if required as a result of future housing developments.

The council said the new school will be designed in a way that will allow future expansion easily if the need to increase numbers to 315 is realised.
