A Port Talbot comprehensive school is fighting proposed closure plans.
Port Talbot Council says it wants to move Cymer Afan Comprehensive School pupils to a £30m new build, Ysgol Newydd Margam, which is currently under construction.
Cymer Afan is located at the top of the Afan Valley and the school says infrastructure and transport links there are quite poor.
The school says education is the biggest employer in the valley and there would be serious economic and social implications if this proposal were to be approved by the council.
There are just over 200 pupils at the school, which means it is half empty.
Pupil Millie Rogers says she feels sad because she has been wanting to go to Cymer Afan School "all her life".
The consultation will begin next month.
