Pencoed Comprehensive School Newsletter
As you'll have seen, we've now started producing newsletters every term focusing on news and events relevant to the school and our pupils.

Thank you.
Dates for your December Diary
Staff and pupils at Pencoed Comprehensive look forward to welcoming guests to our Christmas Fair on Friday December 13th (9.30am - 1pm) and Christmas Concert on Tuesday, December 17th (1PM).
Wednesday, December 18th - Last day of school for pupils. School finishes at the usual time of 3.25pm.
Monday, January 6th - First day of the spring term for school for staff and students.
The Christmas Fair is organised annually by Year 12 pupils as part of their Welsh Baccalaureate Qualification. The pupils spend weeks arranging all the different stalls etc, ensuring that the Fair is as varied and attractive as possible. The Fair is held in the school’s Sportshall and your attendance would be very welcome, with all the money raised going to charity. More information will be available nearer the date on posters displayed in local businesses in Pencoed or by calling the school on 01656 867100.
Another excellent event is the Christmas Concert held at Salem Chapel, Coychurch Road, Pencoed at 7pm on December 17th. The performances of our pupils at this concert are always outstanding and very much appreciated by the audience. Christmas is a busy time for everyone but if you are able to attend you’ll find it very worthwhile. Also on the same day, senior citizens are invited to come along to a Christmas Dinner held in the school’s canteen at 12pm. Already attending are members of the school’s Senior Citizens Club and the Llanharan OAP Club but we would always welcome more guests. The Christmas Dinner is followed by a shorter version of the Christmas Concert in Salem Chapel, starting at approximately 1pm.If you would like to come along please call Linda Harpwood on 01656 867106.
community links are important in Student development...
Pencoed Comprehensive School is a Community Focused School.
We build on close community relationships, whether that is through Friends of Pencoed Comprehensive or through our local senior citizens. We believe that building relationships with our community is very important.
We believe that community links are important for student development and that the community can also benefit from our involvement. We aim to build on close community relationships and initiatives already established as well as develop new links, particularly with local businesses and organisations.
Current school initiatives, either led by ourselves or in partnership with others, include the Senior Citizens Lunchtime Club, Project 1932 with Dr Louisa Evans, The Zone after school childcare club, and Keeping Up With Your Child Classes for parents. With the establishment of the Friends of Pencoed Comprehensive School in April 2011 the aim is to increase existing initiatives such as the regular boot sales held in school.
learn about Pencoed Comprehensive School, and what makes us different...
Pencoed Comprehensive School was opened in 1974, in purpose built accommodation. It is at the centre of a growing town and is fortunate to enjoy a large and attractive campus. The School serves a community which has seen major changes from the traditional industries of mining and farming to those of light industries and technology manufacturing.
Pencoed Comprehensive School is a mixed 11-18 Comprehensive of around 1100 pupils. It is located adjacent to the M4 motorway, but the area is semi-rural and in close proximity to the renowned Heritage Coast. Cardiff and Swansea are both easily accessible by road or rail.
