Children in Need 2015

In spite of storm Abigail we had a fabulous day!  The 6th form looked great in their fancy dress and worked hard putting on loads of brilliant activities in the sports hall at lunchtime.  Staff are feeling full as we had a superb coffee morning at break in the staff room with lots of home made cakes and a raffle.

Overall we raised nearly £2500!

Altered arrangements for school bus access to the school site

As from Thursday 12th November we will be working with Morgan Sindall on a one week trial of altered arrangements for school bus access to the school site.  They will be allowed to use the construction site entrance to access the school and will use the school gates to leave the school. This arrangement is exclusively limited to school buses.  No other vehicles or pedestrians are allowed to use the construction site entrance at any time.

Y Pant Students Building the Future with Llanmoor Homes

Last week our year 10 BTEC Construction students visited the Llanmoor Homes site in Tonyrefail.  Llanmoor released the following media statement following the successful visit.

Welsh homebuilder, Llanmoor Homes, invited a class of students from a local school to visit one of their developments last week. The year 10 students had the opportunity to learn about what it’s like to work in construction first-hand from Llanmoor’s award-winning team.

The students, who are studying for their Construction GCSE at Y Pant School in Pontyclun, visited Padfield Court in Tonyrefail last Thursday and were lucky enough to hear presentations from Alison Howe from the Construction Industry Training Board, NHBC award-winning Site Manager Dale Dickenson and Llanmoor Homes Construction Director Matthew Grey.

The visit comes as the housebuilding industry is calling for more young people to consider a career in construction. The current shortage in skilled construction workers, combined with the fact that one in five construction workers is set to retire within the next 10 years, means that tens of thousands of workers of all skill levels will be needed to keep up with the growing demand for building new houses.

Matthew Grey , Construction Director at Llanmoor Homes, said:

“The opportunities available for young people to build a career within the industry are huge but we need to make sure we’re doing all we can to encourage people to consider looking at housebuilding.”

As a growing industry, housebuilding is full of varied and exciting roles for people with different skills and interests.

Matthew continued:

“As well as the traditional construction trades, we employ people in HR, sales, admin, design, Technical and management roles

“Sadly however, until recently the trend has been to favour academic study over practical careers, which has contributed greatly to the current shortages. There’s been a lot of pressure on young people to pursue certain types of careers that aren’t the right fit for them. Practical, vocational skills are incredibly valuable, and can lead to a huge variety of exciting, well paid career opportunities.

“At Llanmoor, we want to inspire the next generation of housebuilders so that we can keep producing quality homes for people to build their lives in. We hope that this visit has inspired and encouraged the students from Y Pant School to think seriously about housebuilding as a career.”
