Parents of two Catholic schools in Denbighshire will find out today if their campaign against a merger has succeeded.

St Brigid's in Denbigh and Blessed Edwards in Rhyl could be merged into a single school with one head teacher and governing body.

However they will be based on two separate sites twelve miles apart.

Over the past few months, parents, staff and pupils at St. Brigid's have been campaigning to stop the closure of Wales' only state-funded boarding school.

The proposal by Denbighshire council is to address concerns over sustainability of the schools and low pupil numbers.

Councillors will be advised to drop the proposal at a cabinet meeting later today.
