Description:
Lewis School, Pengam is a comprehensive school founded in 1729 in the town of Pengam and, latterly, nearby Gilfach, in the Rhymney Valley in south Wales.

Location

The school currently comprises a new facility, opened in 2002, in Gilfach at the northern perimeter of one of its former Pengam sites. Before 2002, the site was in adjacent Pengam, across two sites, with a bridge spanning the main road between them. A third site, at the former Graddfa Secondary Modern School in Ystrad Mynach, provided for around 300 younger secondary pupils between 1973 and 2002. This third site was purchased in 2003 by Ystrad Mynach College, whose Ystrad Mynach campus lies adjacent to the Graddfa site. Until circa 1853, the school was located in Gelligaer.

History

Established as a Grammar School, it was originally a school for boys, hence also known as Lewis Boys' School. The school is associated with Lewis Girls' School in Ystrad Mynach. Girls are now admitted to the sixth form.

In 1986 the school was criticised by STOPP for its use of corporal punishment (caning), after an inspectors' report stated that 60 out of 360 boys in the lower school had been caned in the course of one year., Today, London, 31 May 1986.
