Last Thursday marked the last ever day at school for students and staff at Ysgol Llanerfyl.

Whilst schools across Powys closed their doors for the summer, for this Welsh-language primary school, they will not open again.

The pupils pictured on their last day, at a social distance, will instead head to the revamped Ysgol Dyffryn Banw after the summer holidays, which is two-and-a-half miles away.

Powys County Council made the decision to merge the schools together in September last year, a move which will save £50,000 a year.

As part of a consultation it was found that 83 per cent supported merging the existing schools with 14 per cent against.

Out of a total of 229 responses, 61 per cent wanted to see the new school established at Dyffryn Banw with 35 per cent against.
