Pupils in the 14-19 department access college courses at Coleg y Cymoedd at Nangarw and Ystrad Mynach campuses for half a day each week. In 2016/17 the pupils are studying courses in Music/ Dance/ Drama and Painting/ Decorating. This develops the skills which are more vocational and which they may use in later life. In addition, pupils are able to socialise in the refectory and become accustomed to the size of the college.
