Two comprehensive schools in Powys could close as part of an overhaul of secondary education in the county.

The council is considering plans to close Gwernyfed and Brecon high schools and replace them with a £50m education campus in Brecon.

Under the plans, Welsh-medium education would be provided at a bilingual school in mid Powys, currently Builth Wells High School.

The measures are to address falling school rolls and financial pressures.
