If Llanfyllin High School was closed what would the policy be on the transportation of the pupils to another school? I live in Llanwddyn and at the moment the children are picked up at 8.05 to get to school by 9.00 - nearly an hours journey! If the school were to close the journey travelled by pupils to the next nearest school would be nearing the 2 hour mark one way. Is that really an acceptable length of time for children aged between 11 and 16/18 years? On top of that there are some pupils who still need extra transport to get them home after the school bus has dropped them off - which could take their travelling to 2.5 hours one way!.
