About Governing Body Meetings
The Governing Body meets at least six times a year and the Audit, Curriculum & Quality and Resource Planning Committee meetings are also held at least termly. Search & Governance Committee meetings are held at least twice a year and also when new members are being considered/interviewed. The Remuneration Committee meets once a year and the Selection Committee meets when a Senior Post-holder/Clerk vacancy arises.

Bilingual Minutes of Governing Body and Committee meetings are made to record the discussions and resolutions/decisions made.
In addition to the Minutes, the Clerk prepares an Annual Report which is presented to the Governing Body and submitted to the Welsh Government. This report includes details on membership, meeting dates and attendance, Members’ declarations of interest, discussion topics and training received for both the Governing Body and its Committees.
As well as these meetings, there is a Joint Committee for the Penybont Sixth Form College which meets termly. This Joint Committee oversees the strategic direction and mission of the partnership which started in 2016/17. Membership of this Committee is derived equally from the Governing Bodies of both Bridgend College and Pencoed Comprehensive School. Since Bridgend College’s involvement in this partnership, A Level results at Pencoed Comprehensive School have improved by 26%.
