Ysgol Y Pant

Brief overview of the Project

Secured under the SEWSCAP Framework, in partnership with Rhondda Cynon Taff County Borough Council, Y Pant Comprehensive School is part of an extensive investment in education across Wales.

The state-of-the-art 8,743m2 facility replaces the old and outdated previous campus. Working next to the existing school, which remained live throughout the scheme, Morgan Sindall Construction built a new two storey teaching facility, a 3G sports pitch to FIFA stage 1 recommendations, a new Multi Use Games Area and a grass football pitch.

The project also included the refurbishment of the existing drama and sports facilities – the only parts of the existing campus that remained. Following completion of the new build and a safe transition of pupils into their new facility, the team commenced demolition of the old facilities, to leave the school with a transformational learning campus fit for the 21st Century.

Completed under a £24m Design and construction contract, with 1,400 capacity comprehensive school, including a 300 pupil sixth form.

The Electrical Installation included:

  • Full internal and external Lighting system including automatic controls
  • Emergency Lighting self test system
  • Low voltage distribution system
  • PhotoVoltaic System
  • Cat 6 Data cabling
  • Accessible WC alarm
  • Fire & Refuge alarm
  • Lightning Protection
  • Security systems including CCTV & Access Control

The exciting redevelopment of Y Pant School saw pupils moving into their fantastic new facilities in January 2017.  With support from the Welsh Government’s 21st Century Schools Programme, Rhondda Cynon Taf Council has been able to invest £24.1million to improve the learning environment and facilities available to pupils, staff and the wider community at Y Pant.

The new facilities include brand new science, art, food technology and design technology teaching spaces; impressive ICT classrooms, a lecture theatre, modern dining facilities, a new library, a wonderful main hall, fantastic sixth form facilities, a floodlit 3G pitch and Multi Use Games Area (MUGA).
