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.

Our SchoolLearn about Us and what makes us different... At Pencoed Comprehensive School we believe in the following core values
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!
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.
