Plasdŵr will be a place to play and learn too with over £40 million allocated to provide four new primary schools and a secondary school.

Three primary schools will be dual entry and one will be triple entry. The secondary school is expected to provide up to 2,000 school places. The first of the primary schools, it is hoped, will be delivered by September 2020 as part of the first phase and will provide 480 places. The other three primary schools will be located in the north, south and east of Plasdŵr .

The secondary school will be located alongside one of the primary schools to the west of Plasdŵr, near one of the four centres and alongside the public transport route and strategic cycling route and within 1,500m of 98% of the homes.
