21st Century Schools

The Council has included Pencoedtre High School as part of its 21st Century Schools Programme. The proposal is to fully refurbish the existing School and build a new sports hall. This would begin from April 2019. The project is reliant on obtaining 50% of the funding from Welsh Government.

On 10 November 2017 the Welsh Government announced that it was committed to supporting all of the projects proposed by local authorities, totalling £2.3bn of projects. This is subject to the approval of the full business cases for each individual project.

The Council is working closely with Welsh Government to secure the funding and will be looking to appoint a contractor in the autumn.
