The School is the oldest Comprehensive in Gwent.  It was formed in 1965 by the amalgamation of four schools found in the town.  The schools concerned being two Secondary Moderns, a Technical and a Grammar. Tredegar Comprehensive School occupies the site of Ty Trist colliery, and the school’s mining museum serves to remind us of this link with the town’s industrial heritage. The school is a purpose built comprehensive arranged in ‘Blocks’.
