Calls to block plans to scrap Torfaen sixth forms

Teachers and unions have called for plans to remove sixth forms from English-medium schools to be blocked.

Torfaen council said moving post-16 provision to a new £20m facility in Cwmbran from September 2019 would benefit pupils.

Sophie Toovey, an English teacher at St Albans in Pontypool, said the move could create barriers for disadvantaged children.
