Campus developments

New Town Centre Campus

We have plans to open a new 13,100 sqm development in Bridgend town Centre. This will encompass two new buildings at Cheapside that will provide exceptional teaching and learning facilities, including a theatre, hair and beauty salons, recording and dance studios, design workshops, and more. The new development will relocate our facilities currently based at our Cowbridge Road Campus.

“We are excited about the aspirational plans to create a vibrant new town centre campus in the heart of Bridgend. Our ambition is to create a net-zero carbon building, with twenty-first century learning and teaching facilities for post-16 education in Bridgend, with community benefits including a 200-seat theatre space, a coffee shop and flexible meeting spaces.

“This investment, part funded by the Welsh Government’s Sustainable Communities for Learning Programme, will play a key role in the regeneration of Bridgend town centre, supporting local businesses and utilising public transport links into the town.”

Simon Pirotte, Principal and CEO

Sustainable Garden, Pencoed Campus

As part of our extensive development programme at our Pencoed Campus which included the opening of our £30m STEAM Academy in September 2021, the central area of the campus will be transformed into a multi-use plaza. This will include sensory gardens, a rain garden plus and an outdoor eating area covered by a sedum green roof. The focal point will be an amphitheatre which will allow outdoor teaching and events to take place under cover.

Low Carbon Demonstration House, Pencoed Campus

We have secured Welsh Government Net Zero Carbon Maintenance and Equipment Funding to convert a 3-bedroom domestic property at our Pencoed Campus into a low carbon demonstration house.

The house will be a teaching facility for our students which will allow them to see sustainability brought to life in a practical setting, whilst inspiring others about low carbon opportunities. The house will also be utilised by our students with additional learning needs, to allow them to develop important independence skills within a home setting.

We have been working in conjunction with the Low Carbon Built Environment (LCBE) team at the Welsh School of Architecture in Cardiff University to benefit from their expertise in retrofitting houses.
