A private school in Gwynedd with 150 pupils has announced it will close.

Hillgrove School, in Bangor, caters for boys and girls aged four to 16 but will shut at the end of this academic term.

The principals of the school said the decision had "not been taken suddenly or lightly" but that "economic realities" meant it would be unable to continue.

The school, a Christian foundation, has been running since 1934.

In a statement on the school's website, principals James and Sylvia Porter said: "We remember with pride and fondness the children who have passed through our care over the years and wish our current pupils every success as they leave for pastures new."
