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.
