ISG consults on £80m Cardiff school campus scheme

The council named ISG as preferred bidder in March for the planned three-school campus and now details of the plans and enabling works for a temporary school at the site are being showcased.

It will be Cardiff’s first to target operational net zero carbon, as well as a significant reduction in embodied carbon during the build programme.

Located in the Fairwater area of the city, the education campus will become the new home for Cantonian High School, Riverbank School and Woodlands High School.

Subject to planning, to be submitted in September, work on the new campus is expected to begin in early 2023.

Deputy Leader of Cardiff Council, and Cabinet Member for Education, Employment and Skills, Cllr Sarah Merry, said: “This public consultation is the next step in the development of Cardiff’s first joint educational campus and an exciting milestone for the futures of Cantonian, Woodlands and Riverbank Schools.

“The enabling works associated with the project and the establishment of temporary school buildings for Cantonian High School, are an integral part of the project which when complete will provide exceptional facilities, expertise and teaching opportunities for students, staff and the community.”
