Safe Cycling Route to School

As part of the ongoing Safe Routes in the Communities scheme that is currently being constructed in Pencoed to improve pedestrian and cycling access to the school, the section of footpath linking the Redrow estate on Hendre Road to the Woodlands Playing Fields is to be reconstructed.

In order to undertake these works the link from the Redrow estate to the playing fields will have to be closed, with no pedestrian or other access permitted over this length during the construction period, commencing Monday 15th January 18. Notices indicating of the closure have been posted on site since 27th October 2017 informing of an impending closure and as such pupils should already be aware that the route will be closed.

Parents may wish to discuss the closure with any pupils that currently use this route to walk or cycle to school and to discuss any alternative routes to school during the construction period.

Pupils First

We work closely with pupils in Key Stage 2 in primary school. Change is always an exciting prospect and the change from Primary to Secondary school is one that everyone remembers, with stories to tell! At Pencoed Comprehensive School we try to ease the transition as far as possible by helping pupils to settle into our school community.

Learning Time is Paramount

For the past few years, Pencoed Comprehensive has been following a clear school improvement agenda. We have already seen the benefits of new strategies at all Key Stages, with improving results year on year. The future for pupils at Pencoed is an extremely bright one!

Powerful Performance

Mutual Respect

The school has a strong family and community ethos, exemplified by our unique House and Pastoral systems which are very popular with our pupils. We believe that a happy, healthy and well supported young person will then have every opportunity to develop to their full potential academically, personally and socially.

About Us

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.

2015 started brilliantly for Pencoed Comprehensive School when we received confirmation from the Welsh Government that we’d been categorised in Group 1 for standards and Grade A for ability to carry out improvements. Consequently we are a ‘Highly Effective’ school, colour coded as Green. Pencoed Comprehensive is one of only nine ‘Green’ schools across the Central South regions and one of thirty schools across Wales, out of 211 secondary schools.

Our Community

Pencoed Comprehensive School is a Community Focused School.
We believe that building relationships with our community is very important. Existing community relationships, include Friends of Pencoed Comprehensive, senior citizens, local primary schools, local businesses and organisations , as well as Pencoed Town Council . We believe that community links are important for student development through work experience, Welsh Bacc and other Learning Core community related activities. Hopefully, 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, Keeping Up With Your Child Classes for parents, Pencoed Town Carnival, and the production of concerts and shows.

The aim is to increase existing initiatives and develop further partnerships with the local community.
