community links are important in Student development...
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.
learn about Pencoed Comprehensive School, and what makes us different...
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.
