The school has developed an exciting link with the Into Film project, which allows Pen y Dre pupils the chance to preview and study films with the aim of learning more about the film inudstry.
Recently, Year 10 pupils were involved in a trip to the newly refurbished Penarth Pier Pavilion cinema.
On this occassion, the all-female group attended the trip to hear from leading women in the film industry with the aim of encouraging more women to take up careers in the film industry.
Of course, the free popcorn and film tickets were a great way of encouraging our pupils to think more carefully about their career paths in the media!
Indeed, one of our former pupils has worked with Aardman Animations creating storyboards for 'Morph' amongst other productions. We have some of these storyboards that we hope to display soon in the school.
The trip was organised by Mr Price Head of IT and DCF at Pen y Dre High School.
