Local MP for Pontypridd, Owen Smith, says he recognises that Rhondda Cynon Taf council has a difficult problem when it comes to dealing with catchment areas. The council says it's in a consultation period over the issue and welcomes all views.
Around 300 people have held a protest in Pontyclun today about proposed changes to school catchment areas, which could see pupils attending a different school.
At the moment, pupils in Llantrisant go to Y Pant Comprehensive, but under plans being considered by Rhondda Cynon Taf Council, pupils from Llantrisant and Penygawsi primary schools would be moved to Bryncelynnog in the future.
Parents say they're not happy at the idea, due to the distances involved to get to the school.

Controversial plans to reduce the amount of time younger children spend in nursery classes in Rhondda Cynon Taf have moved another step closer today, after the council's Education and Lifelong Learning Scrutiny Committee voted not to refer the proposals back to cabinet for reconsideration.
Three opposition councillors had called in the cabinet's decision to go ahead with the plans, concerned about several issues including how there had been "no consideration of the emotional effect" on the children, and "no consideration of the wider economic effects on families."
Rhondda Cynon Taf Council's cabinet voted to press ahead with the changes last week, which will see the end of full-time nursery provision for three-year-old children, with youngsters attending full-time from the term after their fourth birthday.
It did make amendments, after widespread opposition from parents - with the changes due to be phased in from September, rather than April as originally proposed.
The council says it needs to make budget savings of £70m over four years - and its proposals for nursery provision are still above the statutory minimum.
A group of parents have said they will seek a judicial review against the council's actions.

Children will be able to attend full-time nursery from the term after their fourth birthday, rather than having to wait until the September following their fourth birthday for full-time education via primary school reception as previously proposed.
