Cefn Hengoed Community School
A beacon for education in Swansea
Cefn Hengoed Community School is located high on a hill in the Bonymaen and Winchwen area of Swansea. Originally built in the 1960s, it was in need of remodelling and extension.
The scheme involved retaining the original concrete frame and over-cladding it. We have created a double height learning resource zone, cafe breakout space and entrance atrium and an additional 1000sqm of new teaching accommodation. In its elevated position it is visible from some distance and the new multi-coloured facade creates a landmark education building for City and County of Swansea.
