Caerau is a former mining village in south Wales, located around 2 miles to the north of Maesteg in the Llynfi Valley, and is part of Bridgend County Borough. The township grew rapidly after the opening of Caerau Collieryin 1890. The colliery consisted of three shafts (North, South and No. 3 Pits) and employed 2,400 men at its peak in the early 1920s. The mine closed in 1977.
Caerau has primary and nursery schools within the village. The old Caerau primary was over 100 years old when it was closed, and was destroyed by arson while the brand new Caerau Primary was being built. The new Caerau Primary School is a state-of-the-art "Eco Building" constructed from eco-friendly materials, there is also a complex ultra high efficiency heating system within the building.
