The Physical Education department at Pontypridd High School consists of four members of staff who are passionate about their subject and enthusiastic about the impact it has on pupils' learning and development. While committed to our subject we are keen to embrace new challenges and welcome whole-school responsibilities and liaisons with the wider teaching community.

We are a motivated, forward thinking department building strong relationships with our pupils and strive to deliver our subject in innovative ways.
