New drone footage released by Bouygues UK shows the significant progress made at the Pencoedtre High School build.
The school was included in the Council’s 21st Century Schools programme, a unique collaboration between Welsh Government, the Welsh Local Government Association, local authorities, colleges and diocesan authorities.

work began last year to create the £34.7m, state-of-the-art, three-storey school building that includes a four-court sports hall, an all-weather hockey floodlit pitch and grass rugby and football pitches.
Now, new footage released by the company in charge of the build, Bouygues UK, shows how far along the project has come.
Mike Baynham, regional director of Bouygues UK, said of the project:
“Undertaking a major project such as this during a global pandemic has been a challenge to say the least, but despite delays and having to work within strict regulations, we have ploughed on and the progress is fantastic.
“We can really see it coming together in this drone footage, which is truly wonderful. We are looking forward to continuing our work with the school and community ambassadors, the staff and pupils of the school, and the local neighbourhood, to bring this project to fruition.”
