Community praises school facilities

Sports clubs, dancers, scouts and brownie groups have praised state-of-the-art facilities at Croesyceiliog School which are now open to the community.   

The £30m 21st Century School development, which included a flood lit all-weather pitch, theatre and dance studio, was opened to local sports clubs and activity groups in October.

Since then, more than 36 different groups have hired the indoor and outdoor facilities for dance classes, cricket, Brownies, musical concerts, youth and seniors’ rugby and football, and wheelchair rugby.

Adam Smith-Lucas, Cwmbran Football Club, said: “The winter 3G training facilities provide an excellent opportunity for the players to maintain their skills and fitness levels during the colder months, the facilities are well equipped with lighting and a very versatile space.”

Chris Page, Llanarth Cricket Club said: “Our club used Croesyceiliog sports hall for senior and junior teams, the facilities are excellent, being accessible, modern, clean and well-lit and all equipment was of a good standard.

“We found the online booking system particularly useful to view availability of the facilities so we could plan our usage, also, all the staff we encountered or communicated with were always helpful, we will be using the facilities again and recommending others to do the same.”

Dawson Jones MBE, Pontypool Rugby Club, said: “On behalf of Pontypool & District Schools RFU I would like to thank Croesyceiliog School for the use of the facilities last season whilst our outside fields were waterlogged, it certainly helped the District team winning the DC Thomas Cup at Principality Stadium.”

The venue is open six days a week during term time, with extended opening hours during school holidays, and onsite parking. For more information, visit Croesyceiliog School - Facility Lettings / School Hire ​​​​​​​
