A Tour of our School

We hope you enjoy looking at the many photographs of subject areas in Porthcawl Comprehensive School. The photographs provide an opportunity to see inside many of our classrooms, look at pupils’ work and get a sense of the spacious site and the excellent resources available.

We regularly show parents and pupils around the school during the day. Mrs Sloggett one of our Deputy Head Teachers, plans our extensive transition program and is the member of staff to contact for tours for current year 6 pupils. Every year we welcome a large number of new year 7 pupils from out of catchment.

Ms Crook is our Head of Sixth Form and is the member of staff to contact for tours for current year 11 pupils considering joining us for sixth form studies.

To book a tour or to receive further information about Porthcawl, please contact our reception on 01656 774100. We very much look forward to hearing from you.
